How can I move Firefox settings from Win XP to Ubuntu?
I am transitioning from Win XP to a new Ubuntu Linux OS (10.10 or higher). Firefox help pages only give information about backup/restore settings within a single OS. I want to transfer all of the settings, extensions, preferences, bookmarks, everything that I have built up over the years on the Win XP version to the Firefox I'll be running on Ubuntu.
Can I use Firefox Sync to do this? If so, how? If not, what do I need to do?
I'm comfortable using a Linux command line and poking around in Win XP's hidden files. I know where the Firefox data lives on both Win XP and on Ubuntu Linux. I just need to know how to transfer that data into Linux-readable data.
