I will be changing operating systems from a bland HDD. Can I save the cookies and stored passwords?
I am finally switching from Windows 2000 to XP and will reformat the HDD. I would like to preserve some cookies and stored passwords in my backup data. How can I do this?

Your bookmarks and all of your Firefox settings (saved passwords, cookie permissions, etc.) are stored in your Firefox profile folder. You should make a copy of that folder.
These articles have more information:
Also, in case there is some problem with importing that data directly, you can export your bookmarks to an HTML file and save that separately. See: Exporting bookmarks to an HTML file | How to | Firefox Help.
Hope this helps.
