    Convient way to back up and restore Firefox ?

    I was hoping there is a way to compact FireFox and all the plugins installed for transport or backing up instead of having to reinstall Firefox and all the plug-ins you use on a regular basis again ? If you go the latter route you'd have to write down all the plug-ins you use, then reinstall firefox if it's on a new machine or on a new OS, then go and install those plug-ins all over again. I'm hoping there is a quicker route atleast with firefox ?

    I just go to C:\Users\[windows-username]\AppData\Roaming\ and zip up the Mozilla folder. Then I only need to plop it back and its like nothing happened. Firefox is not even aware it was reinstalled or moved.
    Logic without the fatal effects.
