2 questions:

1) Can Firefox be reinstalled over a current version w/out losing
individual user settings?

2) Can you create a new user and copy preferences from a current user
(unique settings, bookmarks, address book) into the new user's prefs?

Probably. Best advice is to uninstall first.

Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.
