I will be moving to a new Windows OS (WIndows 7SP1 64-Bit), and I want to do a clean install. How can I back up EVERYTHING, including bookmarks, settings, apps, themes, etc.. ? So when I do the clean install, I won't have to worry about anything. Do I have to do each one individually, or can I do a complete backup? So when I go to install Firefox on the new OS, everything will be just like I had it before.

Secondly, can I move my Firefox to a USB flash stick, and make it mobile? I would appreciate all and any help. Thank You.

How to always enable Java 6 with Firefox 18

I implemented Firefox 15 with Java 1.6.0.35-b10 to be used with a particular Vendor's website. The site has no internet except for accessing this vendor's website. Several weeks ago Firefox 15 updated itself to Firefox 18 and blocklisted Java 6. I was able to unblock it, but now each time the users log into the vendor's website, Firefox prompts the user to activate Java 6. My users are nagging me to turn this activate screen off but i cannot figure out how to permanently activate Java 6 on each of these machines. The vendor is not willing to upgrade to Java 7. I have tested Java 7 with the vendor's site and of course it doesn't load. Consequently, I cannot get this machine to roll back to Java 6. Once they activate Java 6 they can use the website. I could switch back to IE8 and use Java 6 with no problem, except that IE8 has a flaw in it. I have read that I cannot install IE9 on Windows XP pro, so I am stuck with Firefox. Windows XP Pro SP3, Firefox 18, and Java 6.

I use Mozbackup to synchronise Firefox from my desktop to my laptop. My laptop's Firefox would not start and displayed a crash reporting dialog.

I completely uninstalled and made a fresh, new install with Beta 19.0.2. I then restored my Mozbackup from my desktop, item by item. When the "Certificates" item was restored, Firefox would not start and display the crash repoting dialog. So now I know that the certificates item is the culprit.

Why does this allow Firefox to start on my desktop but refuses to do so on my laptop?

Thanks a lot! heskel@usa.net

This is in Adobe Reader X.

Hi, I can not access ebay.de ; bbc.co.uk , cnn.com and so on. But if I try signin.ebay.de then the site opens and I can login. But I can not bid, open anything I watch and so on. When I try to open one of the mentioned sites the result is. Server is down, disconnected, or absolutely nothing. Help!!. This problem started when I upgraded from 18.0 to 18.01. I hoped it would dissapear with 19 beta but no it didn`t. Normally when you click a link you will see the link down inthe left corner while Firefox opens up the new site - but nothing. I`ve tried to put the adr. into the "bar" directly, but no same result. I`m running Firefox 18.0 at my portable PC and there are no problems. I`m using Windows 7 Home edition. One more thing normally there has been no problem with upgrading but this time I had to download the whole Firefox (booth the 18.01 and 19.0beta versions) and run them as admin to be able to upgrade. HELP!!!
