The mother board in my old computer died, I got a new computer, but cannot install the harddrive (new computer is a laptop, old was desktop) into it. I have an external harddrive dock for the old drive, and can copy most of my stuff, but am lost on how to do so with firefox.

On Windows, the Firefox profile folder (which contains all of your browser data) is usually located in the following location:

C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

This is the profile folder that you want to recover your information from. See Recovering important data from an old profile for more information.

Hope this helps.

Note that "AppData" (XP: Application Data; Mac: ~/Library; Linux: ~/.mozilla) is a hidden folder.
