    Hey guys I was wondering where I could located where these files would be. I am planing on copying everything manually and starting fresh.
    I want to copy over:

    Application licenses
    Firefox data (saved passwords, bookmarks, etc)
    Preferences for certain applications

    and yeah thats about it. Thank you and let me know :)

    That's going to be a very tedious task

    Is there a reason you don't want to do a fresh install and use Migration Assistant? It will pull all your data and settings over without the trouble.

    Preferences will be in both your system preferences folder and your user preferences folder

    For Firefox data, you might want to use Spotlight to find any associated files

    For App licenses... I think this will vary

    Someone else might have better answers than that
    But I would strongly consider Migration Assistant
