Mozilla Firefox -- Can I transfer everything?

I'm hoping there might be one or two Firefox users who see this and can help me out. I just started using Firefox a few months ago, and I love it (not sure if I could ever go back to life without tabbed browsing). I'm now using it on 3 PCs (home, work, laptop), but I find myself manually bookmarking, downloading, customizing, etc each machine one at a time.

I'm wondering if there is a way for me to copy all of my Firefox settings, bookmarks, extensions, (anything else?) from one PC to another. I'm guessing this is possible, but is it relatively easy? Keep in mind that I'm fairly comfortable with computers, but I know almost nothing about programming, registry edits, etc., so the simpler the better.

Thanks.

Just replace the other Firefox profiles with the one you want them all to share the charcteristics of. If you're using WinXP or 2000, the profile should be located in C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

Thanks for the help! Just to be clear... The profile I want to use is located on my desktop PC and called "default.uq4". To transfer everything to my laptop, I just replace the laptop's default profile folder with the default.uq4 from my desktop PC?

Will this also allow Firefox on the laptop to use all of my extensions installed on my desktop?

I can't say for sure if Firefox extensions add values to the registry. Probably do, but I could be wrong. Safest option would be just to do the manual extension install on each machine.

A little googling will probably answer it for you. Sorry for the lame response. I don't have time to look it up.

I think firefox adds everything, and they will prompt you with what you need to add manually.
