Re: automatic change of Resolution on Notebook
Did you try installing the proprietary driver? I believe it's under System>Restricted Drivers. I'm not sure which video card you have, but I've found this to be the simplest, and most n00b friendly fix, depending on your card.

For your second question, I don't believe there is. I have my firefoxes synched amongst different computer running linux by using Dropbox, but since the profiles are stored in different paths under Windows and Linux, I expect you can't have one common profile for use by different platforms.
