Hello, Is there a way to Export (EX:Similar to REGEDIT)-save the entire "tree". Way to export about:config settings? *Native* to Firefox? (preferable) Have not checked ADD-ONS, prefer "Native" as feel more stable.


My Goal (2) 1st- Doing my "Fall Clean" of my PC, (FORMAT C::)  :-) And dn't want to have to remember the settings (nor necessarily "Sync" all the same settings again).

2nd-In the future, before making any about:config settings (a.la. REGEDIT) -can make an EXPORT to put back what didn't work.

Thanks!

hello WhereIsMyMindAt, all the preferences are stored within the prefs.js file in your profile folder, which you can backup or read with any text editor.
