I currently use Firefox on Win XP sp3 and am preparing to install Win 7 which must be a clean install. I have a complete backup of the computer but I will need to reinstall all apps. I found the 'Backup Book marks to HTML' though I'm not sure it if also works for the toolbar websites. The password manager seems to only import from IE or Safari with no 'Export' Are there files/folders or a profile that I can simply copy from my backup to Win 7? I would prefer not to have to manually enter all my saved logins if possible.

Thanks

After I uninstalled Firefox, all icons returned to usual PDF icons and files were identified as "PDF" files, but when I installed Firefox (31.0) again, all PDF files again are identified as "Firefox HTML document". Extensions do not change, they are always .pdf, and files automatically open in Adobe Acrobat, but icons became "firefox HTML documents" icons and it is very confusing.

I imported all my bookmarks from Internet Explorer 8 but not all of them came through. Then I exported the HTML file from IE and imported it into Firefox and all of them came through but got added onto the initial (partial) list. How do I remove the partial list of bookmarks so that I can avoid duplication ? Or how do I delete all the bookmarks from Firefox in one go so that I can import again from the IE HTML file  ?Thanks.

Why has the function of my up & down arrow keys changed? Did I click something by accident? Help please?

(My new kitten *might* have stood on something on my keyboard - she's done that before & put Full Screen mode on, but I managed to fix that)

Normally, I scroll down a web page a bit at a time using the down arrow key on my laptop keyboard. Since yesterday, when I press the down arrow, the page jumps to the bottom (like pressing PageDown would do) and the up arrow jumps all the way back up.

How do I set it back so that it scrolls a bit whilst I press the key?

I never save passwords - never have, never will. Using evil IE, Gmail works correctly in that it prompts me for ID and password for each new browser instance. Yet when I open gmail with FF, it goes straight to my inbox without prompting for ID or password. I use gmail in "always secure" mode. Cookies are enabled, of course, just did not expect my password to be saved and loaded from a cookie. How can I rectify this problem?

I will soon be getting a new computer. Having a large number of websites and respective access passwords saved in Firefox Mozilla, it would be very convenient to be able to export this information to the new machine after installing Firefox, as one can do with Bookmarks. Is this possible for websites+passwords?

Tried two ways:

(1) Adding through the automated mechanism whereby I am prompted about the untrusted self-signed security certificate of the URL. When I clicked on the "Confirm Security Exception" button nothing happens. I don't see the URL being added to the exception list.

(2) Adding manually through the Option Menu. The URL was truncated into xxx.xxx.x.xxx only. I still cannot access to my firewall.

I do web development. I was working on a site with a self-signed certificate and therefore had to create an exception in Firefox to access the site using https. Due to unrelated problems on the server, I deleted the account and then recreated it. I also had to create a new self-signed certificate. Now Firefox returns the message Error code: sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial. I deleted the original exception from Firefox but it still returns the error. I tried to explicitly create a new exception but that returned the error, too. Note I do not have this problem with other computers on the same network and the problem does occur if I move the offending computer to another network. i.e., the problem is associated with the computer, not the network or router.

Previously, the icons for add-ons (e.g., noscript, the weather, or reminders) were displayed at the bottom of my screen, and I could click on them to perform the relevant function. Now they are not displayed, and I don't know how to get them back. I'm particularly interested in getting back noscript, as I almost always use it, but I regularly accessed a lot of add-ons from the now-missing information bar. I don't even know what this information/icon bar/display is called.

Until today, I had no trouble opening Adobe Acrobat files with Adobe Reader 9.5. (I need to use an old version of Adobe Reader, because I use a program called Macro Express that does not recognize later versions.) Starting this morning, when I click on an Acrobat file, I am asked which program I want to open it with. Even when I click "Do this automatically...", it doesn't do so. It asks me every time. I went into Tools, Applications, and changed all of the pdf related issues to open with Adobe Reader 9.5. This also doesn't work.
