I am planning to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 Pro. Is there a way to migrate my info/settings to the new operating system when I download Firefox and make it my default browser?

This is your current profile. Copy the folder As Is to a folder on a thumb drive. Then Copy the folder to the new system.
