Hi,

I want to be able to backup my Firefox 3.0 profile on my iMac so I can transfer it to my Macbook Pro. Does anyone have any idea on how to do this?

The profile folder is in one of these locations, and you can copy it to the new machine.

* ~/Library/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/<profile folder>
* ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile folder>

Ah. I presume then that MozBackup would not work. It would be looking for the wrong path!
