How to export/import (save/restore) all settings?
Thanks in advance.

There is a button on the Options dialog for that.

Note that there is also a button on the Whitelist tab, for exporting/importing only the whitelist, not the other settings.

Er, Thrawn, this thread is in FlashGot General, not the NoScript forums...

Don't be. That happens.

By the way, I found out that I can backup the "Prefs.js" file in the Firefox folder. It contains lots of settings from FlashGot. ;)
Until FlashGot starts providing its own save/restore mechanism, I'll keep backing up that JS file. Better than nothing.

Reason: remove color so that formatting is legible

No worries, I initially made the same mistake Image

Thank you for reporting your findings. 8-)

BTW, the color you used in that post made the bold formatting near impossible for me to discern. So I removed the color.
Please try to avoid colorising entire posts, as that can make it hard for people to read what you write. Thanks Image
