(I use both, and IMO Opera has better out-of-box features.)
The Firefox release notes have some good information:
The profile folder is located on these versions of Windows, by default
(It can be specified at another location):
Windows 2000, XP Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application
Windows NT WINNT\Profiles\<UserName>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
Windows 98, ME Windows\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
There is a profiles.ini, and pluginreg.dat and the directory with a
"salted" name for each user in the Firefox directory as listed above.
When you re-install Firefox, just copy the profile folder to the desired
location, and you should be good to go.
