Backup/Restore your Firefox Extensions/Add-ons using FEBE

Firefox is the one of the popular web browser customizable with large number of add-ons, plugins or themes. But it’s a fact that firefox crashes sometimes which may result in losing the installed add-ons, themes, bookmarks, preferences, passwords or cookies. You may find it difficult to install all these stuffs again at this point of time.

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) allows you to quickly and easily backup and restore your Firefox extensions, themes, bookmarks, preferences, passwords and cookies. You can selectively restore only the items you need. For instance, you may just want your bookmarks restored and leave everything else as it was.

Features of FEBE:

  • One click backup from the Toolbar.
  • Schedule automatic backups on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Can also be configured to backup on Firefox startup and/or shutdown.
  • Save backups in time-stamped folders to easily identify when the backups were created. Specify how many folders you wish to keep and FEBE removes the oldest.
  • Backup reminder. FEBE can alert you if a backup has not been completed in a specified number of days.
  • Comprehensive results report with links to the author’s extension/theme homepages.
  • User-defined backups. Make backups of virtually any file or folder – Firefox related or not. Just specify what to backup and FEBE does the rest.
  • Extensive built-in help files. Just click the little blue information icons in FEBE options.
  • Uses native Firefox zip/unzip components. Much, much faster than previous FEBE versions that depended on external, third-party utilities.
  • Upload backups to your Box.net account automatically or with a single click.
  • Verify your extension directory. Upgrading Firefox versions sometimes leaves garbage in the extensions directory. FEBE can clean it up.
  • Quick Backup. You can quickly backup as many or as few individual extensions/themes as you like. They can be saved together in a single, installable xpi file.
  • Simpler profile restore interface. No need to use the Firefox Profile Manager to manually create a profile to restore into.
  • and more other features..

If you don’t like to burden your firefox browser with this add-on, you can install this add-on once, backup your extensions, and then remove it. If any day your browser crashes out badly, you can install this addon and restore the backed up addons!
