Hi,
I just bought a new laptop with Win7 home Premium and i am wondering...
I have been using FF for many years now, but I had many crash issues recently, so I was thinking switching to Chrome. but before making that step, I need to know if
-I can retrieve my history
-my cookies
-my bookmarks
and anything else of critical importance from one comp. to the new one (FF is not installed yet).
could anyone help me, please?
I would be very grateful
Thank you very much

When I installed Chrome I am prompted to retrieve these items from FF (or IE; there's a choice to pick).

If you just bought a new system just how did all your settings from your old system get on the new one?

Good question, plwhit . It is 2 days old! I will have to do it manually since they are not connected in network. Actually, I am not even at home . You know, flash memory... I just installed Office, and I am thinking about browser

Thank you, plwhit ... and I read a thread in another forum (internet) warning about ID and other info gathered by Google that I had not kept in mind because I was so upset with FF crashes. So I think I will go with FF again. I had forgotten about how to retrieve all my info. THANKS.
