    Arrow Transfer everything from FF to FF-portable.

    A friend of mine is wanting to transfer all her bookmarks, add-ons, this that and the other things that are installed and set up on FireFox 2.0.0.9

    Over to her Portable Firefox on a USB portable drive (2GB).

    How does one go about doing this without reinstalling everything? I mean, there are more buttons on her browser than in the Space Shuttle...

    You need to copy the Firefox profile folder(C:\Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\lettersandnumbers.default in Vista) to \PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile on your USB drive. There should be a folder there already, so rename it and rename the lettersandnumbers.default folder to "profile". You might have to change the permissions of the Data folder to rename the original profile folder on the USB drive.

    Good luck!
