Excellent add-on for people who can read instructions! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on that does exactly what it says. Ignore the folks who are endlessly complaining about this add-on doing odd things or not "allowing" them to restore their profiles. It works as described as long as you FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS! I use this on a daily basis to transfer my entire browser setup from home to work, then back from work to home at the end of the day. It's the ultimate tool for backing up your environment right down to your button placement and add-on preferences! Throw in the box.net auto-upload for backups as well as the backup schedule, and you have one beautiful agent to transfer your browser. I use over 46+ add-ons with this and each one of them transfers flawlessly!

Ignore the people on here too dumb to comprehend basic instructions in English; Read the FAQ and you'll do just fine. FEBE is the way to go for anyone who needs to clone their browser. Not only that but the support forum he provides is actively monitored and whatever bugs you may find are addressed immediately.

Worked fine when I needed it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Until I finished building my Linux-only machine I was using a Dell D-3000 with XP Home installed. My Firefox v2 on that machine was heavily customized and I dreaded the thought of trying to manually duplicate it on my new machine.
I didn't need to do anything manually. FEBE did it all, and did it right the first time. BUT.
Since firing up the Linux machine in June, I have updated Firefox to v3, also. I learned that many of the custom features I had on v2 were no longer compatible with v3 and so FEBE wasn't the raving success it had previously been.
But can I blame FEBE? Or is this the fault of the Firefox v3 developers? More than likely, it is both.
From what I understand, FEBE itself has had to be modified to work with v3. What is more, I also understand that the version of FEBE that works for Firefox v3 is not backward compatible. I would expect that because of this, anyone will have problems using it successfully when transitioning from v2 to v3.

Screen Clutter Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The program takes charge without any warning - after it's finished doing whatever it does - it leaves dozens of pictures of boxes on the desktop with meaningless captions underneath which takes a long time to clean up. There is no way (that I can see) that allows you to change the settings.
DON'T bother with this one before they figure out a better way to customize the interface & explain exactly what this thing is supposed to do (which, at this time, seems non-existent).

FEBE settings

"There is no way (that I can see) that allows you to change the settings."

To change settings, go to Tools > FEBE > FEBE Options. If your backups are displaying on your desktop, simply change the backup destination directory in FEBE Options > Directory.

If you are having issues with this extension, there are several links mentioned above for help. These include a FAQ and an active support forum.

No "auto" restore of Profile Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Apparently I don't get it. When I try to run FEBE and Restore Profile (to copy onto another comptuer), I get a popup message which says somthing like, "you have ony one profile. FEBE cannot restore onto itself"... infers I need a 2nd profile, but having more than one profile is recommend for "advanced users".

That leaves only "manual" restoration... running each part separately? That's as much hassle as downloading and installing each bit from scratch.

Why can't FEBE be a stand alone executable so that it can be run to restore a profile when Firefox is not running??

Great piece of addon backup software.
Saves me loads of time finding addons and installing them.
Saves them all and they can be used on other PC's

The new version is awesome. I had used an older version with some difficulty, but this is quick and easy. Now with the online storage option for FEBE backup files I can use it anywhere.

This is the most valuable and powerful extension I have used with firefox.

Kudos to Chuck Baker!! Keep up the great work

Great extension, however the Update box continues to hang ever after the successful results page is displayed. I've left it sometimes for a couple hours while away from the comp and it still hangs with the progress bar cycling over and over. I end up having to X out of it. It appears to be backing up correctly though.

strange Rated 2 out of 5 stars

maybe i'm too dumb for this extension.. it all looks very fine and needful, manual backup works great, but unfortunately it doesn't backup with scheduler.. this were actually the important part for me..

the most comprehensive backup Rated 5 out of 5 stars

i'm an old fan of FEBE. everything's great about it. the scheduled backup option and the ability to choose among the items that are going to be backed up is awesome.
this new version offers an online backup option, too, using a third-party space. i think this part needs more customisation options.

MozBackup Rated 5 out of 5 stars

SLOW!!! I wanted this program mostly to up backup my bookmarks, preferences and passwords in FireFox 3.0.1. After running for more then two hours and still not finished with a backup, I aborted the FEBE backup and uninstalled the add-on.
Next, I downloaded installed and ran a program named MozBackup. It did backup everything that I wanted, plus more. Backup was completed in less then 5 seconds. The big negative with MozBackup is that no option is available to Schedule backups.

Progress window not closing

The reason your FEBE progress window is not closing and instructions for fixing the problem are addressed in the FEBE support forum (link above) under the "Progress window not closing" sticky.

This is an excellent add-on! I just have a suggestion to make: it would be perfect if it would also work in Thunderbird!

It's great to see that FEBE has been released for Firefox 3!

FEBE does an excellent job of backing up your browser info, including your favorites and extensions. Plus, you can schedule it to do so whenever is convenient.

Thanks Chuck!
