Exactly. There is no export option, only import. What I did
do was to back up the whole computer, so I knew I had my profile saved on the external hard drive. I figured I'd done what I needed to do. But then I was not able to import them back into FF from the external drive. I would have been able to import them from IE to FF but I had no way to import them into IE either.
I did know where the profile folder was saved to (I've moved profiles before from FF to FF). The first problem was that I thought I needed to move it to the Application Data folder when I only needed to move it to the App Data folder. Once I solved that, the second problem was that I didn't realize I also had to move and replace the standalone ini file. Once I did that I was able to open FF with my old profile intact.
