Terrific Addon Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I have never had the negative experiences that others have had (hanging or whatever). I'm think it could be that some people are using the same profiles they've had since Firefox 1.0 and maybe everything would work better for them if they'd begin anew every now and then (which FEBE can help you do, by the way).

The only issue I have with FEBE is that it's a little bit heavy on system resources. Without it installed, my current profile uses about 350 or 360 MB of RAM with a single tab open. With FEBE installed and the same tab loaded, it uses 400 MB. That may not seem like a lot, but imagine if every addon used that much memory! Things would bog down pretty quickly.

Of course maybe it's not possible to do it any differently, so I won't dock a star for that. The solution is to disable FEBE until you want to backup, then re-enable it. Of course there are easier ways to backup a profile but they don't do it the same way FEBE does. I like the backups it creates.

Anyway it's well designed and easy to setup. I've personally never had it fail in the six months I've been using it. I didn't find the restore menu to be particularly intuitive, but the author has a website and with it I didn't have any trouble restoring a backup.

Great add-on! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

One of the most used add-on! Allow to create new and clear browser with all the prefs. Thanks to creator!

Let's just say that chrome users would wish to have this kind of control over their extension packages!

Отличный инструмент для резервного копирования данных FF Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Пользуюсь уже около двух лет, сохраняя плагины и настройки — подтолкнул случай внезапной потери профиля Firefox. С тех пор с помощью FEBE несколько раз быстро развернул профиль после переустановки системы.

Интерфейс не идеальный, но работает всё очень чётко; достаточно 1 раз посвятить время тому, чтобы разобраться и настроить. После этого о себе не напоминает и работе не мешает. Честно говоря, даже для того, чтобы описать, что он бэкапит, пришлось лезть в настройки — просто я знаю, что этим занимается FEBE, и больше не забиваю себе этим голову.

Some issues with FF42, fix on the way? (I prefer not to try beta versions) Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

If it werent' for the current problems with FF42, FEBE would probably rate 4 to 5 stars from me. I'm not paid to be a beta tester, but you are welcome to try the beta version of FEBE yourself.

A problem with FF42 (and probably caused by FF42, not FEBE) remains for me and some other users. FEBE stops (freezes completely and never completes) when attempting to do a selective backup; it generates a huge window (which grows each time) that is unresponsize, and an [Abort] button that doesn't work, requiring the famous 3-finger salute CTRL-ALT-DEL to kill it. The author does offer some possible fixes here and in the support forums, but woe be unto you if they don't work for you and your particular machine, and you report this here.

It's very interesting how my previous honest 1-star review has vanished from this page. It's almost as funny as how unprofessionally the developer responded to my simple, honest review... right before my review and his ranting reply vanished from this page.

And mine is not the only review that's vanished. Suffice it to say that this developer and the add-on review system can no longer be trusted to be honest. FEBE may or not currently be 4+ star extension (it was before FF41 or so), but you can't tell when honest reviews with reported issues are mysteriously removed.

I expect that this 2 star review will vanish within 48 hours. I've uninstalled the broken FEBE exension for now. Perhaps I'll try it again, in a trillion years, under a different developer. Kidding, you couldn't pay me to use FEBE again.

"The author does offer some possible fixes here and in the support forums, but woe be unto you if they don't work for you and your particular machine, and you report this here."

This is not the place to report bugs. When you leave a review for any add-on, the guidelines are clearly displayed on the right:

" Please do not post bug reports in reviews. We do not make your email address available to add-on developers and they may need to contact you to help resolve your issue.

See the support section to find out where to get assistance for this add-on. "

Bug reports are summarily removed from here. Once again, I will gladly help resolve any problems you are having with FEBE. But it must be done in the support forum.

Absolutely INDESPENSIBLE! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This is one of those add-ons that makes Firefox what is is for me. I can't imagine not having it. I have my Main, Private and then my Public profile that I use for work or other professional environments when I want a "nothing but business" setup without any personal stuff (following the best-practice "If you don't want it on the front page of the newspaper then don't have it at all." rule for business).

I've tried all sorts of syncing tools and not a dang one of them gives me what I want if they even work at all. Besides, I prefer not to do the whole "cloud" thing. With FEBE I can transfer my entire profile, down to the tiniest detail - appearance, add-ons (and their settings)...everything, to whatever device that I'm using Firefox on. I always have an updated version of my profiles in my Dropbox if I need it (okay I guess I do the cloud thing a little :) )

I've been using it for years and absolutely love it. Thanks for a great add-on!

Works great, I don't know what these other people are doing wrong. Its not even that complicated. Once you look at the settings you really appreciate how well designed this addon is. I have it backing up everything to my dropbox automatically every night.

I never could figure out why people would take the effort of leaving a negative review here when all they have to do is leave a post in my support forum (http://www.customsoftwareconsult.com/forum/index.php). I cannot help users here, it is not allowed.

I respond to *every* post in the support forum, usually in 24 hours or less.

Did work well until recently. Now it doesn´t back up any more. Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Restoring profile could be simpler and a lot of functions could be dismissed. But overall it is good - if it would work again.

May be best possible given FF limits, but... Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Installing it was easy. Backing up was easy. Restoring profile was a ****ing nightmare. I never managed it. If you don't have dozens of extensions it's probably faster to just reinstall them than wade through the complexities of this monster.
But, one must admit, given the structure of Firefox, a simpler solution just may not be possible.
But the point is, whoever is to blame, this is just not a fix to anybody but a techno-whiz.
Totally unusable, a real nerdpile.

If you don't know how to restore a profile, you could have asked on my support forum. I would have pointed you to the page that instructs in detail how to perform a profile restore:

Back up starts and stays stuck at 3.8%. Life is too short, it's gone.

Раньше работало, но были проблемы с восстановлением. Перестал ее использовать.
Теперь решил поставить снова для удобства. Аддон пищит и зависает firefox при любой команде аддону (попытка зайти в настройки и т.д.). Я не хочу плясать с бубном вокруг компа из-за каждой проги, я не шаман. Я хочу, чтобы все работало и работало хорошо.

Fonctionnement totalement imprévisible Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

J'utilise FEBE sur 3 PC avec FF V 39.0 et j'ai toujours sauvegardé, jamais restauré. Aujourd'hui dans une situation difficile suite à problème hardware, j'ai essayé de restaurer avec FEBE et rien n'a fonctionné. Restauration sélective des extensions et l'action ne se termine jamais et aucune restauration d'effectuée. Création d'un nouveau profile et restauration du profile, même résultat et en plus impossible de démarrer FF avec le nouveau profile.
Lorsque l'on est dans une situation d'urgence, on a pas le temps de faire des tests. Ce type de programme ne supporte pas l'à-peu-près.
Je donne une étoile car je ne peux donner moins

Useful but still buggy. For example I don't know why there is no button "Save preference and exit".
I use FF 39. I made clear install. In Febe I clear references and setup them again but when I close Firefox, Febe references are always lost.
I have to use Import preference and then start backup process manually.
This type of situations are going on for years with Febe. Some smart basic intelligence is still needed for automatic recognition of different situations and checking of Firefox files.
Overall it is a good concept and extremely useful program. This is why I give him 4 stars.

looks like amateur, buggy software Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

Great when it works, which is half the time. The rest of the time, it hangs.

Also, you restore a profile and tell it to restart with it, and your layout changes (like it has the single button at top instead of a menu). This was not my layout for months.
