Lately, we were getting many mails to teach you how to make a backup of your Firefox’s registry. Here is a quick tutorial on how to access and then make a back up of your Firefox registry, in case you want to make some changes to your Firefox registry.

Open your Firefox browser and press ALT+D, type in the address bar: about:config and press Enter. You will be given a warning, simply click on ‘I’ll be Careful I promise!‘ button to proceed.

aboutconfig
You will see different entries that you can modify by double clicking on them. You can make changes to any of these files, but before that don’t forget to make a back up of your registry.
