-- Duplicate of /questions/977733 --

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 don'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,

Instead of just the settings, you can use the Firefox profiles to be able to backup and restore the settings. This way, you will be able to not only export the settings, but also, bookmarks, password manager data etc. You can do this by following instructions in the KB article Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles.

Also, to know what data is part of the profile, please check this KB article Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data

Hope this helps.
