I have Firefox set up on my old XP machine. I now want to set up Firefox on my new Windows 7 machine. I can easily export my bookmarks to transfer to my new machine.

I cannot find any way to export my Options settings. In particular I need to export my lists of "Exceptions" to Cookie / Image / Pop Up Rules. However it would also be nice to Export the other settings such as homepage. I want to set up three accounts on the new machine and it will be very tedious if I must re-enter all the information - especially as it is not possible even to cut-and-paste the text from the Exceptions lists.

Is there any tool for me to save all the Options from one installation and then load then into another?

I knew which files and/or registry keys to copy it would help as I would not have a problem making appropriate registry changes if it would save me from having to go via the Options menus.

Surely there is some method to do this?

Regards. Steve

I am on a company domain. With IE my NT credentials (workstation logon credentials) are used for all Intranet web sites (within the local domain), so there are no authentication prompts. With Firefox I get hundreds of authentication prompts for these same web servers.

I did not copy settings from IE when I installed Firefox, as I wanted to start fresh and use a Firefox approach.

What setting am I missing in Firefox?

All the drop down menus in firefox "disappear". I can see the shadow of a drop down menu but there is no text. If I click anywhere in there it will open the webpage or action that is supposed to be in that spot.

I saw that someone suggested going to tools then options, etc...but when I open the tools menu there is no text so I do not even know where to click and even when some text appears it is not the full menu. I have tried reinstalling Firefox but this did not help.

The Status bar has suddenly disappeared from the bottom right hand corner of the screen. I've checked 'view > status bar' and tried reinstalling Firefox again and rebooted to no avail.

This has happened since a virus was caught by NOD32 anti-virus software if that's relevant.

Does anyone know how to solve this? Thanks in advance.
