      The reference was Mozilla 1.5. I tried Firebird and as far as I could
      tell it didn't have an email client. The client included with Mozilla
      is the only one I have that isn't MS. I saw little need to have
      Firebird and Mozilla installed.

      Extensions, I'm not sure what those are in the case. Would that be
      additional plugins or different skins.

      If skins, Mozilla can be cleared by deleting the file chrome.rdf in the
      chrome folder and rebooting, Might be possible to copy that file to a
      new location and copy back after a new install.

      Most other customizations are in 'prefs.js', on my machine the path is
      C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application

      There may be other files with setting and prefs but I haven't had enough
      trouble to dig into it. The newer Mozilla has an installation option to
      rip out all the extras or leave them in place. The only addition I
      usually make is to add Multizilla. It enhances tabbed browsing.
