You wanna back-up your personal flavour of Fx? mozbackup!

Hi malware fighters,

Each and every one Firefox user has his or her own Fx configuration with add-ons etc.
To easily back it up, use this: http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/

The FEBE Firefox Environmental Backup add-on already does that only for firefox though (which is all I need), so this might be a little lighter.

I'd rather use MozBackup. I've used both and I think MozBackup is more reliable.

Hi Tech,

Have to second you there, that is why I gave up on FEBE. It had conflicts with other add-ons, and it did not do the full job, only partially backing up, especially as I am a Test Pilot for the latest nightly builds of Minefield, backing up is vital for the developer and browser security analyst,

Been using this a while. Very good. There is also a Thunderbird backup from the same vendor.
Searched for this after loosing all my emails from OE one sad day.
