Files/Folders to Move from Firefox Version 1.5.x to 2.0.0.x


First:
Create a new Firefox Profile
You can access the Profile by a right click on the Desktop shortcut
To the end of the target path add one space
Now:
Type -p
The Target line should look similar to this:
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p

Use a Profile name other than "default"

Now:
Install Firefox 2.0.0.4
Use the "Custom" install when prompted (Custom Install Screen Shot)
When prompted for Program Files location, rename: (Program Files Name Screen Shot)
This will prevent problems with the current 1.5.x Program Files

Next:

Copy these files from the old Firefox Profile to the new:

bookmarks.html
cert8.db
cookies.txt
hostperm.1
key3.db
mimeTypes.rdf
persdict.dat
prefs.js
signons.txt
signons2.txt
userChrome.css (located in the Chrome folder, and only if created by you)
userContent.css (located in the Chrome folder, and only if created by you)
user.js (if created)

Folders:
bookmarkbackups

In the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox:
Copy the plugins folder
