    I use Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.7....I frequently use its "save passwords" feature and have saved passwords for many sites..Now I want to format my HDD and reinstall the OS which means I will have to reinstall Firefox too...

    I wanted to know if there is any way of backing up my saved passwords(in Firefox)...If it is possible then how will I be able to restore them after I make a fresh install?

    just copy the folder "Mozilla" to safe location

    Path C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla

    i hope by doing this u can backup everything... (bookmarks, passwords, extensions, themes,..)

    I think we can excuse him. He's still new. And since Firefox is an Open Source browser so I we can be a bit lenient even if the OS is windows.
