Re: [FireFox] Need to Backup all my Firefox Settings, but where? The links provided by Grail Knight should help explain everything you need.
However, I'm more of a visual kind of guy...I like pictures!
For a Windows Vista/7/8 system, the default location of your profile directory should be
Where xxx = your Windows profile name.
If you look at picture #1, I have a screen shot of that location. There you can see my actual profile name, which is "7v45uhvb.default".
If I go into that folder, I see what is in Picture #2.
I can then create a folder somewhere on my computer (I used my desktop), and I called it "Firefox Backup". I then copied the contents of my profile directory to my new folder on my desktop. This is shown in picture #3.
If at that point you then remove Firefox, which may also remove your current profile (if you select that in the uninstall options), you can start over with a clean install.
Then, once Firefox is re-installed, and you run it, it will create a new profile. The path will be the same as I have, but the profile name, the "7v45uhvb.default" will be something different.
Just go into that folder (you may want to save those files too, just in case you ever want to go back to a "default" profile), delete everything, and then copy the files from your backup.
