Hi,

I am about to wipe my hard drive and start with a fresh, clean install of 8.1. What is the easiest(recommended) method of saving my WF/FF settings, including bookmarks, exts, addons, etc?

Should I just refresh WF and save/backup .old file? Do I need to refresh FF as well?

Should I first reinstall FF before WF.

Is it safe/recommended to delete .old files presently on my system first?

Would appreciate any help on this.

System info;

Dell Inc. Inspiron One 2305 7932 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory 2.80 gigahertz AMD Athlon II X2 240e 1000.19 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity

Thanks, Hal

WF = Waterfox

And since that browser-version has been altered by 'them' I would think that their forum would be the best place to get a total answer... JIC.

Moving to Other Applications as this is not a Firefox question.

Hi,

Let me rephrase;

I am about to wipe my hard drive and start with a fresh, clean install of 8.1. What is the easiest(recommended) method of saving my FireFox settings, including bookmarks, exts, addons, etc?

Should I just refresh FF and save/backup old file?

Dell Inc. Inspiron One 2305 7932 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory 2.80 gigahertz AMD Athlon II X2 240e 1000.19 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity

Thanks, Hal
