Presque indispensable, mais ne fonctionne plus avec FF Quantum. N'a pas d'équivalent.
J'abandonne Firefox !
Cette extension fonctionne avec Palemoon, Basilisk, Waterfox et Cyberfox.
please insert a new of version Add-Ons (FEBE)
Should this extension work with the ESR-versions of Mozilla Firefox?
Yes, but only on ESRs that still support XUL (v52.8.0 and below).
Greatest Firefox extension of all time, as far as I'm concerned. I keep a Febe backup of my Firefox settings on a USB stick on my keychain. I need a URL, or an extension, or restore my entire profile to the PC I'm on at that moment? Sure! Just takes a few minutes. It's much more secure than uploading everything to the cloud like Chrome does.
Because the new Firefox broke Febe, I keep a copy of the Firefox v56 installer on the keychain now as well. :D
firefox57.0.4 FEBE can not work now, when can support it?
Thanks Chuck. I have used your work a long time and it has been very helpful. I do not understand development, but your work is part of the mozilla community, many of us use it and should think about it. Thanks, again
Used to be a really frequently used extension of mine. Changes happen every day to a browser, and it's good to keep backups updated regularly. Yeah, i got on board with using an updated browser. Going to keep on hoping this or some other kind of backup addon will come along.
FEBE (v10.2) works really well now with Pale Moon in conjunction with the Profile Manager
Many thanks Chuck for all the years of your support
i am most pleased to be able now to continue my use of this excellent extension
mi experencia es muy buena y es una extension muy importante
I'll miss FEBE in Firefox, but it lives on in my other browser of choice, Pale Moon!
Thank you Mr. Baker for many years of a truly useful backup extension and, hopefully, many more with Pale Moon!
It was a great addon. Really sad, that it's not possible to port it to Firefox Quantum. Maybe make a separate application?
new Firefox = FEBE's death
So why give it only one star? You are supposed to be rating FEBE, not Firefox.
A Genius Tool.
What a pity it's not working anymore with FF 57+
Any chance to come back on this ?
Excellent add-on and I will miss it. I had no idea it would be crippled until installing the latest Windows Patch and losing all my bookmarks and settings. At that point I find out there is no way to recover my back up files. For those of us caught out by this how do I get an old version of Firefox so FEBE will work and I can recover my bookmarks etc?? Many thanks, good luck for future projects.
See this thread in my support forum:
It explains how to get older Fx versions that FEBE can restore into. (The post is about another of my extensions, but the steps to install an older Firefox still apply.)
It was one of my favorite addons. These were good years together.
Thanks to developers and good luck in their another projects
Thank you very much and i will miss you
it was great 11 years , many thx for all your hard work , u will be missed :(
Быстрое восстановление настроек FF после краха системы или на новом компьютере. Быстрее сделайте его совместимым с FF Quantum!!!!
es la mejor app para firefox lastima que ya no funcione mas???????.
In my opinion this extension is really indispensable. I'll need it onto Firefox Quantum, please develope a new version compatible with it :)
WebExtensions does not provide the APIs that are needed to support the functionality of FEBE.
Mu bueno y practico
I expect to find great value in this extension when working around Mozilla bugs such as this:
1234400 - Investigate failures to sync addons.
Thank heavens I backed up with FEBE before I installed the latest update, FFox 57. Launched 57 and, as always, my settings, add-ons and more were right there, ready to go!
Unfortunately, with FFox's 57 update, FEBE's great features have been "broken" and I'm really disappointed.**
I can't tell you how many times FEBE saved me a significant amount of time that would otherwise have been wasted on trying to hunt down all of my preferred add-ons and settings before I could safely surf again.
I suspect I'll be lucky if I can find a replacement add-on that's anywhere near as good this one.
Thank you, Chuck, for a great add-on. I've donated before, but I'll happily "up" my donation if you chose to rebuild FEBE for FFox's present and future upgrades.
With great respect,
**For those don't understand why FEBE has stopped working, please return to the main FEBE page and read the "About this extension" statement. Chuck hasn't dropped the ball. Firefox's latest new upgrade has crippled many good add-ons. But FEBE is without a doubt the one I will miss most.
First, thank you for FEBE, for so many years always updated and working perfect. Thank you for your personal time, attention and great dedication to FEBE users.
Second, I don't know if it is possible, but please Chuck, try to build a new FEBE for web-extensions.
I am an old FEBE user, I donated in the past, and will glad to donate again for a new FEBE in Firefox 57+.
Chuck, I really hope to see your great work again! Thank you very much!
not sure since when i'm using FEBE ... it was a long time ago when i have to reinstall my computer and this add-ons FEBE help me to restore my firefox.
FEBE also useful to export all my firefox settings, add-ons, etc easily to another computer and notebook.
Sadly ... this add-ons cannot keep alive with new firefox :(
Thank you very much to FEBE Developer!
