I have Firefox set up just as I like it on my old PC. Now I have a new PC with Firefox and want to move everything over. I've looked at the articles on Firefox Sync but I'm confused about how to specify the direction in which I want the data to move. Do I have to set up Sync on the OLD PC first & then attach the new one, or set it up on the NEW PC first etc.?

I may be wrong on this, but my impression is it may not matter which one you set up first.

To be on the safe side, I would set it up on old pc first.
