I downloaded Firefox day before yesterday and it was so slow it was painful.

I found the best way for me to upgrade is to completely remove the existing FF and preferences. Then install the latest version as a new install. Then, use the add-on backup utility, FEBE, to 'restore' the profile -- which includes all my preferences, add-ons, bookmarks, password file, etc.

Just asking, doesn't Mozbackup do the same thing? It has always worked for me, but I am only up to FF v 7.01. It always seems to do very complete restores.
