Gen'l Qn. re Backing up F'Fox and T'Bird

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Dennis J. Tuchler, Dec 2, 2006.

  1. I use both T'bird and F'fox in their latest incarnations under Linux.
    What files must I save and then reload in order to keep all my settings
    and address book settings and copies of mail sent in order to start up
    where I left off in case I have to reinstall everything?

    Thanks

    A reinstall will not touch your profile settings. The user data is
    stored separately from the program. On Linux, the profile folder is hidden:

    Backing up regularly is a good idea.
