    If I understand correctly, it sounds to me like you're simply not able to access the actual folders that contain your config files in your home directory because their hidden.

    If you use KDE you can open Konqueror, navigate to your home/[username]/ directory, click on "View" in the Konqueror menu bar, and then check "Show Hidden Files". From there, you can manipulate them just like any other file/folder.

    I'm not sure how it works with other WMs.

    If you're just looking for your Firefox settings you should be able to locate the lot here: /home/[username]/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxx.default , that folder will contain bookmarks.html, which is your actual book mark file, as well as all the other personal settings.

    big mistake

    If you hate computers all together using linux is a BAD idea!
    you will not find anything you like about it.
    you will die of frustration.
    RUN!
