Transfer portable settings to the non portable version?

I'm using the portable version of Firefox. If I were to install the non portable version on my desktop what would I have to do to transfer my portable version settings to the desktop installation?

In general, the settings for regular Firefox are stored in

and those for the portable version are in

x:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

For the most part, just copy the files. Make backups first, in case "just copy" breaks something. WinMergePortable might help.
