I have Firefox set up on my old XP machine. I now want to set up Firefox on my new Windows 7 machine. I can easily export my bookmarks to transfer to my new machine.

I cannot find any way to export my Options settings. In particular I need to export my lists of "Exceptions" to Cookie / Image / Pop Up Rules. However it would also be nice to Export the other settings such as homepage. I want to set up three accounts on the new machine and it will be very tedious if I must re-enter all the information - especially as it is not possible even to cut-and-paste the text from the Exceptions lists.

Is there any tool for me to save all the Options from one installation and then load then into another?

I knew which files and/or registry keys to copy it would help as I would not have a problem making appropriate registry changes if it would save me from having to go via the Options menus.

Surely there is some method to do this?

Regards. Steve

I just downloaded firefox 4 -BRILLIANT! However one small problem. I have a 10MB/s wifi connection, cleared my internet cache and history more then once, no other tabs or programs running but my online web videos are loading slow, and I watch them a lot since I miss them on TV. From sites like wisevid or karambavideo they used to load so fast, now they are soooooo slow and it's unbearable. Any ideas?

I was downloading several programs and being very careful not to except any additional downloads. When the next day I booted up my computer and found NCH Toolbar on my browser and with it a number of other problems.

(added this from "more system details") - I went to Add/Remove but the NCH Toolbar wasn't there but it's on my browser. I went to Search and typed in 'how to remove NCH Toolbar'. What a bunch of junk- Go to Add/Remove,I did that already-Get free removal software,Yell right with up-sell on software. I burned up two days chasing my tail or these idiots,you know who you are and they'll identify themselves when they try to defend themselves. I kept playing around on the Tabs on Firefox and came to the Tab marked Tools. I opened Tools and found Add-ons and opened that and found NCH Toolbar Uninstall. WOW !!! It worked why did it have to be so hard,because the greedy Jerks have to make money on us. Well, I don't need to ruin to my reputation so my information is free.

Normally, at the top of the screen there are the tabs, which show which site I am using and which sites I have open. Currently, those tabs disappear and the screen is filled completely with the page that I am working on. Only when I jam the curser up to the top of the screen, do the tabs appear. They disappear again when I move the curser down from the top of the screen.

This began when I was trying to pay a bill online (American Express). The site would not function and allow me to pay the bill. The AX "help" person told me that Firefox was the problem and made me change to another browser, but while I was still on Firefox, the tabs disappeared. I was ultimately able to pay the bill on another browser. BTW, I had not been able to pay the bill for about a week, but on my previous tries, the tabs did not disappear. The "help" person said that my cookies needed to be deleted or some such. I have been paying bills on line for years, why would cookies and my browsing history interfere with paying a bill, all of a sudden? I love Firefox and I did not want to use another browser (IE is even deleted from my computer).

A bad coded web page kept on catching my attempts to close it. And I was stucked in a never ending loop of trying to close it or Firefox down with no possibileties to close. Other tabs were no problems. And I did have more than one open tab when I tried. I know I cant close the last tab. But it must be possible to force close this kind of bad written and bugging web-pages. I was using a laptop with Ubuntu Linux 10.04 and the latest 3.6 version of Firefox.

when I try to download a personal video to Facebook I get the message " Firefox prevented this page from automatically reloading". I click the allow button which lets it start downloading but it only stays on 3-5 seconds then gives me the message all over again. At this rate it would take an hour to download a one minute video. I also get this message in other programs and I don't have a clue how to stop it. Help me please!!!
