When I install firefox, I alter some of the default settings, some examples would be set homepage to blank, never remember history, change default download location. I do this in Tools > Options > ...

How can I export just the settings only without backing up the whole Firefox Profile in %APPDATA%/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/...

I assume there is some file which stores this information?

I do not want passwords, bookmarks, and all the rest that comes with most backup tools.


User settings should be stored in %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<Profile Folder>\prefs.js
