I'm getting a new PC later today and was wondering if I could export all of my Firefox settings and info (username/p-word combos for sites, cookies, bookmarks, etc.) from my Mac running OSX (10.4) to the new PC (Windows 7). Want to make the transition smooth as possible, and not having to reconfigure all that stuff would be a big help.

You can copy the relevant files from the profile folder (location where Firefox stores user data) of the Mac, and copy them to the profile folder on the PC. For details of the location of the profile folder see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox

The following link gives details of the files that you can copy, as you are using a different OS, do not copy mimeTypes.rdf - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Recovering+important+data+from+an+old+profile
