Are there any backup utilities for Mozilla, for i.e. if I'd want to backup my
entire account settings into one file or directory.
I'm pretty confused about current status (mail is in one folder (you specify),
browser settings in other (windows/profiles usually). If I format disk, which
directories I should save to make Mozilla work like it worked before? That
includes all my account settings, security and mail. Current structure is:
My account--s69ta06q.slt--cache
                        --chrome
                        --Mail

So, if I want to import this whole account, I should select "My account"
directory and Mozilla automaticly finds this wierd name directory (randomly
based?) and it's settings in it then?

Expected Results: 
Well, first of all, you should have much better control of account directories
Mozilla is using (ok, you can change the mail directory now, but I commonly lost
some messages (haven't reported). More hardly you cand change the Mozilla's
profile directory itself (those wierd subdirectory name)).
Then you could be able to export this account (you could select what to include
(account settings, mail, security accounts, actually the whole Mozilla
settings)) into single files then. So, when you'd like to import account, you
could select directory (like now) or a backup file.
Is it just me?
