    I need to uninstall Firefox 7.01 and do a *fresh* reinstall because of problems that I'm having. I have a couple of questions:

    1) How to I backup the BOOKMARKS only and save it to import on the clean install of FF?

    2) How do I delete the 'default profile' so when I reinstall FF, that profile is NOT used again?

    Thanks.

    Do you use Chrome or IE9 also? If so I think you can make sure the bookmarks in one of those is current, and then when you re-install FF you can import your bookmarks from IE or possibly Chrome.;)

    To backup bookmarks in Firefox ctrl+shift+b or Firefox/bookmarks/show all bookmarks and you will see the options to backup and as well as import your saved bookmarks.

    Uninstall without keeping any settings.
    Or delte all folders from "%APPDATA%\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles".
