Your Firefox extension are kept in your profile folder, located at C:\ Documents and Settings \ "your user name" \ Application Data \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles

This folder is not removed when you uninstall Firefox from Add/Remove.
This folder retains all of your previous settings, and will re-apply them to your new install, if it's not deleted.
That's why, when you install a new version of Firefox, your previous settings, bookmarks, passwords, etc., all remain the same.

MozBackup is a simple utility for creating backups of Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite and Netscape profiles.

It allows you to backup and restore bookmarks, mail, contacts, history, extensions, cache etc. It's an easy way to do Firefox backup, Thunderbird backup ...

I include my FF backup along with all my other routine data backups and save them to a folder on another partition or on data discs. I've never had a problem with it restoring my extensions after reinstalling Windows or fixing a FF corruption, even though some of my extensions are not on his list yet.

1 point of caution though, if you are downloading a newer version of FF it might be that there will be compability issues, so check before you start installing. I make a special folder for all my extensions and i download rather than installing them rightaway.
