Full profile backup/restore is not working well.

Following the guideline in FAQ, after restoring the full profile to a new profile, the new profile only have about 19 MB.... but my backup (.fbu) has about 90 MB.....

Excellent extension. But it would be really nice if you could backup your search engines too.

Make sure FEBE writes the backup file. If FEBE asks you for a directory to write the file to, then you have to rerun "Perform Backup". FEBE doesn't continue the backup process. This is pretty much standard windows practice that FEBE does not do. That is when a windows program asks you for a destination directory, you supply one, and the program contiues the process. In this case writing the bloody backup file. FEBE did not write the file out after requesting the destination directory and I subsequently lost all my info.
I strongly suggest using Google bookmarks or similar.
I tested this logic flaw by renaming the backup directory.

FEBE gets a 3 because this is windows remedial level programming logic.

Misleading

If the "Backup destination directory" is not set when you attempt a backup, a message box appears stating "Backup destination directory not set. Set FEBE options and try again." At this point, the FEBE options window is automatically opened. This is the only option that *must* be set before a backup can complete.

The backup does not automatically restart after the options are set - hence the "try again" instruction.

FEBE always worked for me. It's on my Firefox essentials, up there with Tabmix + etc.

FEBE is feeble.
What it does best is hang for hours. It has done nothing inasfar as backing up anything after two months of use. It does nothing to help synchronize plugins and extensions between computers. FIREFOX really needs a good plugin manager with built-in backup, not an extension.

Generally speaking, a FEBE backup should take less than two months to complete. Perhaps you might consider getting a faster computer, or at least read this item in the FEBE Support Forum: http://www.customsoftwareconsult.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=664

Great Add-on especially for those who wants to uninstall ff and installing it back.

Potentially dangerous! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As a first test I was going to have it backup my extensions into my Desktop folder, but then I noticed the option that clears out the destination directory before backing up! Unbelievable! If one accidentally chose that option, or if something went wrong with Firefox prefs and turned it on, it would delete everything in that directory! Poof, files gone! Not in Trash, but gone!

No extension should ever have an option that could do this, even if turned off by default! Especially one whose purpose is to SAVE data!

I'm removing this extension immediately.

FUD

FEBE does have the option of clearing the destination directory when performing a backup. And yes, it is turned off by default. If you were to "accidentally" turn it on, you would also have to"accidentally" ignore the dire warning message that appears before the directory is cleared (or "accidentally" turn this option off also). In any event, FEBE will not remove any sub-directories no matter how the options are set.

If "something went wrong" with Firefox preferences, it is infinitely more probable that the preferences would become completely unreadable as opposed to arbitrarily and spontaneously switching from "false" to "true"

Nice work! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much! Great tool-especially since a lot of work can go into customizing Firefox.

Excelente ! Guarde todas suas configurações para restaurar depois se vc precisar. Temas, extensões, tudo enfim ! Guarde tudo num ó arquivo e depois restaure quando necessitar. Sugiro o CLEO tambem, muito bom e trabalha em conjunto com o FEBE. Recomendo !

i love this thiing, really helps when you use it on multiple school computers...the only thing that i could thing you should add, is an option to overwrite files as in so they make one big backup of everything, so when there is something new, that gets added, and you dont have to restore multiple backups to get the same thing...that would be awesome...

This is simply awesome. Uploads to Box.net too if you're into it. Faultless as far as I can see.
