If I install the new version of firefox, will it save my custom settings and bookmarks?

Chosen solution

It appears you already have the latest Release version, Firefox 6. You can look to the right of your question or you can look at Help > About Firefox.

To answer your question, updating usually preserves your personal data (Bookmarks, Saved Passwords, etc.). However, it is always a good idea to keep a backup of your personal data in case of hard drive failure or accidental formatting, preferable on another hard drive, a pin/USB/thumb/jump drive, or a CD/DVD, so that you do not lose them. I use an Add-on named FEBE to do that for me on a regular basis.
