That's possible. At least, I don't think FF 3.x -> 3.y will
have such an impact. When I updated Opera, my favourite web
browser, I didn't have problems with bookmarks, cookies,
certificates and other stuff, but that doesn't imply anything
to Firefox.

Only solution: Trial and error. :-)

It does. In worst case, restore older Firefox and keep using
the working settings. Otherwise, try to "translate" changed
settings to the new Firefox version.
