I'm trying to maintain the same firefox configuration, extensions, etc., between my home laptop and my work PC. How can that be done?

Contains all your extensions and bookmarks and userchrome for the default user.

The bookmarks.html you can just directly copy from one machine to the other. Works fine, done it a few times. Between the three machines I like to keep the bookmarks synched up in, I just e-mail myself a copy of the bookmarks file whenever I make any significant changes, and then make sure to download it to the other two copies of FF.

As for the extensions, I'm not 100% on direct copy. For safety, I'd just make a list and manually install all the extensions

I know it all sounds kinda manual, but it only takes a minute at the end of the day (or whenever) to upload the bookmarks file. As for extensions, you only have to install them once, then just have the browser auto-update them on both machines. This should keep things pretty synched up.
