    How do I save the settings for Firefox?
    They took ages to establish & I know how easily any further tweaking might mess things up & require hours of trial & error to restore.
    Guidance requested for intermediate PC skill level.

    I don't know if you can within Firefox itself. If you want to save bookmarks there is a way; but other than copying the fire fox file and pasting it over an installation of the same update of Firefox on another comp, I don't how you can save the settings.

    or if that would work

    I don't know the sys or w/e they are saved in if you want to save those specifically, maybe someone else does.

    make a img disc of your hard drive? and back it up
    That would do it technically.

    MozBackup is a simple utility for creating backups of Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Sunbird, Flock, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite, Spicebird, Songbird and Netscape profiles.

    It allows you to backup and restore bookmarks, mail, contacts, history, extensions, passwords, cache etc. It's an easy way to do Firefox backup, Thunderbird backup ...
