    OK, so all FF gurus please come in

    ...and tell me this..

    I have a laptop in office to which I always worked as a local administrator right user. Now my IS guys came with a stick and forced us all to start logging in to company domain. So now I have an id on company domain, which has been put under Administrator group. But since its a new user, when I log in I see none of my old extensions, history, bookmarks in FF.....I am sure there is a quick way to get them all? Anyone...?

    if you can log into the machine in the way you used to (as local admin) I know you can open up ff & then export your bookmarks to an html file that you can then import into your new FF config once you log out & then log back in the new way, but I don't know of any utilities out there to migrate all your extensions/settings to another installation...

    maybe drktitan56 or someone else of superior skillz may know of a methodology to migrate your settings/extensions but I doubt it will be a one-step process

    I can log into machine the same way...(right now I am at home and all is good) Its not difficult getting all extensions manually and bookmarks are easy anyways...it was just a question of principle....I thought a cool product like FF will be able to handle this.

    Maybe this info regarding setting up profiles will help?

    I would have told you the same thing that BDJ said. I always make a back up on a disk just in case of the un expected.
    I have always been a street hacker if you want to put it in those terms. I prefer to call it guerrilla research of todays machines and the never ending thirst for finding out just what the hell is out there. You fear us only until you want something for free.
