I just clear the cache and copy the whole profile folder to a back up location.

You can do the same thing with plugins, plugin associated .xpt files from the components directory (four in my case) and searchplugins and you don't have to reinstall plugins and search plugins when you change versions (but with the revamped update system since 1.5, this may no longer be necessary?). These are subfolders of the Mozilla Firefox folder in Program Files (or wherever you installed to).

Just copy (from backup folders) the contents of each folder and paste them back into their respective folders after installing a new version of Firefox. Don't replace npnul32.dll, the default plugin, when prompted (you could also skip backing up this particular file).
