    any way to save your all the settings and extension preferences on firefox?
    for some reason whenever FF doesnt shut down properly everything gets reset..

    yeah, I had a cool tool that would backup everything including the extentions. I dont remember it, but a quick google would work. Screw FF I use Opera.

    This is great for backing up your profile, however it sounds like you having a major issue with your Firefox that you should fix before using this.

    every single time i turn it off it loses any and all changes made to it and restarts as if all the extensions have JUST been installed
    ive just decided to uninstall and delete the whole folder which hold FF
    ill reinstall everything afterwards

    doesnt work...
    i removed all the extensions and themes manually, disabled all running programs from task manager yet it still starts up as first run
    its starting to annoy me
    VERY BADLY

    anyone know whats wrong?>

    EDIT: found the issue
    seems i had a few corrupted files in my local program file settings
    i just deleted those and firefox stopped being so pissy
    i did lose all my passwords etc though...
    does anyone know which file is used to keep your passwords?
    i left it in the recyclebin in case i might be able to retrieve it

    Your passwords/cookies/etc are stored in the C:\users\\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles\.default\ directory in Vista and in XP is under C:\Documents and Settings\\AppData\... etc.

    You probably didn't delete that path and you can copy over your old profile into your new one. Just go by file dates to find out which is the new one.
