  1. Hello

    I need help with my current browser (Firefox 2.0), I don't want to lose it settings and all my favorites if something happened to my PC. Is there a way to save all my favorites and settings in it orginal form to a CD/DVD disk?^^

    Yep, here, if you want to do it manually. To a disk for instance. You will see "foxmarks" mentioned; it works very well. I use it because I have over 400 bookmarks and don't really feel like losing them ( In other words foxmarks is very dependable).

    However, you may find it much easier to simply backup your settings, or at least bookmarks on a server.

    hey! thz for those nifty and useful suggestions nathanskywalker , will most definitely going to try em out. =o]

    other question if anyone willing to give me their option on this.

    Let said I want to backup my files beside burning on to the CD/DVD, should I get an external hard drive, or a blue-tooth (a small little stick with usp port attach to it that have like 1-3 gigs on them)?
    any advice on how to do so would be appreciate, the most convenience the better : D

    be sure you read far enough to have at least seen this
    simple copy to another location or device is sufficient. :giddy:
