You dont need to delete your profile
However, it is always a good idea to keep a backup of your profile.
Code: Select all
bookmarks.html // bookmarks
user.js and prefs.js // preferences
cookies.text and cookperm.txt (or hostperm.1) // cookies
signon.txt and key3.db // passwords

Your profile is at %APPDATA%/mozilla/firefox

Profiles in that OS are found under C:\Windows\Application Data\ (single user system)
or under C:\Windows\Profiles\username\Application Data\ (multiuser setup)
