Re: [FireFox] Need to Backup all my Firefox Settings, but where?

I couldn't tell from the extension page but does it back up about:config entries? Those are the ones that need backing up.

If you do a full profile backup,it keeps all settings,themes,etc.

Can we just backup the MOZILLA folder in the c:\USERS\USERNAME\APPDATA\ROAMING directory in Win7?

Should that do the trick?

Thanks

The profile folder is all you need to create another stable profile,if your existing one gets corrupted.

Using Febe or just manually making a copy of that profile folder is the easiest way to keep all your customized settings,bookmarks,etc.

To me Febe is a must have extension,if your existing profile gets corrupted,it's as easy as creating a new profile and restoring a backup to that new directory.

You're up and running in minutes.
