How can I transfer the entire Firefox installation/content (directory, "private data" (cache), settings...) to another harddrive unit?

I want to move all of the Mozilla Firefox browser/program from one Harddrive (for example "C:") to another (for example "D:").

All of it means all of the program files(/directory), all associated data (like in the "\WINDOWS"-directory (application data, registry, "\WINDOWS\SYSTEM")), settings, cache, browsing history, download history, saved form information, "private data" data, add-ons, plugins, cookies, etc..


Grateful for quick, simple solution.

Try using MozBackup, it's a free program that will make backups of various Mozilla programs -- "It allows you to backup and restore bookmarks, mail, contacts, history, extensions, passwords, cache etc. It's an easy way to do Firefox backup, Thunderbird backup ..."

Run MozBackup to backup your settings, uninstall Firefox, install it in the new location, run MozBackup to restore your settings.
