    Export/Import Firefox Settings

    How do I export shortcuts, Adblock Plus settings, etc. from Firefox 2.0.0.18 to another system? There are Mozilla folders in the User tree, but they contain files mostly under GUID names that won't be valid on another system.

    AdPlus itself has import export in its preference menu.

    This is even better.

    In general, Yes I used it many times to duplicate loaded installations of FF.

    Does it work always 100%?

    No, there might be small parts of the system that you have to tweak after re-installation, but it is over 90% correct in what it is doing.

    There is also this Ad-on for someone who store Passwords for re-use.

    This one in less accurate (and thus have always a backup file with IDs and PWs), but it does save a lot of re-entry work.
