    If possible I would like to backup my Firefox to an external HDD, not just book marks and add on's but the whole thing . Does any one know a way I can do this ?

    Thanks :)

    Open your home folder (Your user name). Navigate to Library>Application Suport>Firefox>Profiles. In there you'll see something like Vdf8r7w.default. Backup the whole .default folder. To restore, launch Firefox one time, then re-navigate to the Profiles folder, and copy the contents (not the folder) of the backup into the new .default folder.
