Duplicating your Firefox Profile

When you reformat your computer or getting a new one, you always have to go through the process of getting Firefox back to the way you like it. Did you know, you could save yourself a lot of trouble if you would just make a copy of your Firefox profile? After making a copy, you can plug it into the new Firefox install and get back to browsing.

This morning, Mark submitted a link that would help you do just that. ForeverGeek.com has a nice tutorial on how to duplicate your existing Firefox profile. This is a nice way to make a backup of your profile as well, just incase things on your PC go bad.

Firefox Extension Packs

Thanks to the Firefox extension, Mass Installer, you never have to worry about downloading all your favorite extensions again when doing a clean install of everybody’s favorite browser. The only work you have to do is collect the links to all of your favorite extensions (i.e. to the XPIs) and put them in a text file (one URL per line). Be sure to check out some of the “extension packs” that the folks at Lifehacker put together as well.
