Disc Storage was a nightmare, and I remember drive disks about 6 inches thick and a foot or more across, weighed about 75 lbs.
About the time I got proficient in writing Basic, and using the 031 IBM keypunch, I dropped the program and went into the military.
8 years later PCs came out.

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.
