Hello,

after installing 98.01 recently a tab was opened that informed about a feature for Firefox installations on smartphones: the site said that it is possible to continue my work where I stopped before, including open tabs, bookmarks etc.

I don't have a smartphone - I only use firefox on my notebook. Since I'm considering to buy a new notebook in the upcoming weeks I ask myself how it is possible to migrate my current firefox installastion to a new notebook. Especially I'd like to have all my open tabs, bookmarks and cookies back after having installed firefox on the new notebook.

How can I do this? GreetZ and thanks a lot in advance!

I would use Sync and then you can send your tabs to the new computer. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-set-sync-my-computer
