    hey.
    i upgraded to firefox 0.9 and realized that my fav skin doesnt work, and that it loaded slower for some reason, so i chose to downgrade to 0.8 again. i tried installing 0.8 over 0.9 but now i get an error message whenever i post a bid on ebay. this never happened b4 i upgraded, so ive decided to reinstall it completely.
    im tryin to find where firefox stores my bookmarks, but i cant find them anywhere. i dont think it stores them in the way IE does, right?
    does anyone know how i can find them and back them up, and then restore them when i reinstall FF?

    thx!
    Apu

    well it will be in some folder under profiles ... the actual folder is randomized so it shouldn't be the same as dreamliners77 ;)

    uninstalling does not delete the application data folder.
