    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.
