I dont have a problem with FF. My question is that I am going to buy a new PC and I will download FF on the new PC and wanted to know how to have my current info bookmarks all that stuff mirrored over. Thank you.

I believe that FF is web based and with my new PC and a new FF downloaded is it possible to have all my current data remembered with the new PC from the old PC FF?

Sorry but, FF is not web based. To have your current data placed in your new PC you will have to copy your profile from the old PC to the new using a portable data device (eg. USB flash drive).

You should be able to find your profile at this location:

C:\Documents and Settings\[your user name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

The folder name is "xxxxxxxx.default" where xxxxxxxx is a random alpha/numeric set.

Open this folder and copy all of it's contents to a portable device(eg. USB flash drive).

Then plug the device into your new pc and open the profile folder on the new PC (again, C:\Documents and Settings\[your user name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles). Copy from the device to the profile folder. You will want to overwrite any files on the new PC.

That should just about do it. Restart your new pc and you should have the same profile and set-ups that the old pc has.
