Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Essential back-up tool for firefox's bookmarks, themes, and extensions. Before I used this Add-On, I lost all of that information and had to start over from scratch. Not terrible, but just time consuming. So this is a convenient and useful add-on.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3.1).
Very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This extension is very useful to backup FFThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3.1).
Needs work Rated 1 out of 5 stars
When I start a back up, I am waiting FEBE to finish but in vain. It never finish so I click ''abort'' button.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.3).
There are two ways to a perform manual backup. Tools > FEBE > Perform backup and by clicking the toolbar icon
Convoluted and doesn't work. Use MozBackup instead Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I used this add-on to back up my extensions and bookmarks to transfer to a new Vista PC a few weeks back.
Not only was it confusing to use, (just try restoring a profile once) but it simply didn't work.
I finally gave up with it when I found myself spending more time fiddling with it, than it would have taken to search for all my favorite extensions, reinstall and configure them. Which is exactly what I did.
Fortunately I made a manual backup of my bookmarks - just in case...glad I did.
This add-on is good in theory, but needs some work with usability/reliability. Not being able to restore my extensions was bad enough, but if I would have lost my irreplaceable bookmarks, I'd have been spitting fire on this post.
I now use MozBackup, which is extremely easy to use and works perfectly for FF3 and TBird.

Great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a great add-on. Lets you backup your entire profile. Fantastic.
I have occurred a few problem like others,but problems I've come across have always been resolved, so I'm happy. :) Hope it is improved though.
Not Reliable Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Crashed Firefox and did not work to restore passwords and saved cookies. Luckily I also backed up with MozBack and it worked flawlessly.
Did you try a manual restore?
If FEBE fails to restore any item (for whatever reason), you can always restore the backup manually. See http://customsoftwareconsult.com/extensions/febe/febeFAQ.html#A15 and http://customsoftwareconsult.com/extensions/febe/febeFAQ.html#A20 in the FEBE FAQ.
Love It Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Works well and No thinking after I install it. Very Nice.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3.1).
Waiting for the FF3 beta3 support Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Please add support for FF3 beta 3.
Its a very useful extension.
very handy Rated 5 out of 5 stars
especially when you have around 20 add-ons that are fully customized giving me my personel FF interface
after a FF crash, I was back to browsing in less than a minute from the exact place I left off
thnx to all who created FEBE
Thank you FEBE Rated 5 out of 5 stars
My brand new SATA drive died and took almost everything with it. I did have the foresight to have FEBE store my Firefox settings on another drive. A 15 second restore and everything was like I'd never skipped a beat. Thank you Chuck. You and FEBE are a life saver.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3.1).
Does not work Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I did a clean install of Win XP. Then I proceeded (or so I thought) to restore a full profile backup for firefox. I followed the instructions exactly but this extension did not work. I did an automatic and manual restore multiple times and neither of them were successful. All my extensions and themes appeared in the add-on window but none of them worked. If I clicked on any of the extension options the window would freeze. Also, the browser and button layouts were set to default. The only thing that was restored was the Bookmarks toolbar. Completely aggravating.
I thought this would be a nice program to do an easy automatic backup but it proved to be even more of a hassle. It would have been simpler if I had just made a copy of the profile folder in the Documents and Settings/User/Application Data/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles folder but I decided to trust this program. Not going to make this mistake again!
The only remotely useful thing I could see for this program is saving the individual extensions for backup. Not a big deal.
Does but Doesn't Rated 2 out of 5 stars
It is best used to save all your extensions but to reload them, it is no easier than doing it manually (you have to select all the extensions). I got the password recover to work once in about 15 tries. I even tried manually via instructions and it didn't work. Had to go to another program. Everything is saved separately, you can't just reload everything at once.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3).
Does too ...
A full profile backup/restore handles *everything* in your Firefox profile all at once. And you can install/restore your extensions/themes all at once by using the shift-click and ctrl-click methods of selection.
You could also use the drag-and-drop method described in the FEBE Faq: customsoftwareconsult.com/extensions/febe/febeFAQ.html#A12
This is essential for multiple FF installations Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I use a large number of different machines in different sites, and the first thing I do, if they haven't installed it, is download and install Firefox. The next thing I do is use FEBE, together with CLEO, to install the extensions which make FF the comprehensive browser it can be.
Is there a chance of something similar for Thunderbird?
The Mother of all Extensions - a life saver! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
My firefox is pimped with more than 30 extensions, all crucial for me. The headache of having to reinstall firefox together with some 30+ addons and on top of that the Sisyphean work of configuring each single addon is unimaginable - a sure way to burn a day away. so I needed the sense of security that it would be possible to backup my whole firefox (all addons and all preferences). I gave FEBE a try at duplicating my firefox from my desktop pc to my laptop. There're quite a few people that wrote bad reviews so my expectations weren't high. At first try it only saved the installations for the extensions. after figuring out that I need to select the backup "full profile" in FEBE's options I managed to get FEBE to generate a single file that contained all my addons and all my preferences. so maybe this is where FEBE wasn't user friendly enough for some reviewers that gave it a low rating. FEBE works great you just need to know how to use it but you don't need to be a genius for that. afaik FEBE is the only extension that allows entire backup of firefox, it does the job without a flaw and for that it's a definite 10! mozilla should promote it in the main addons page since no other extension nor firefox itself offer the ability to backup what addons.mozilla.org so much promotes: the customization of your own firefox.
I found only 2 drawbacks. they weren't enough imo to affect the rank i gave FEBE but still, it'd be nice if the developer address them:
1) after installing FEBE 5.1.1 here in the mozilla website, i found that FEBE's website had a version a bit more advanced.
2) FEBE saved the firefox addons and preferences in a single .fbu file so i had to start>run firefox -p to get the profiles menu, create a 'temporary' profile and install febe there just so i could use febe to restore the saved .fbu file into the 'default' firefox profile. maybe it can be possible in future versions to make this process shorter or more automatic?
The bottom line is that FEBE is a must for anyone with more than 3 addons that are highly configurable - let alone someone like me with over 30. That's a great job done on this addon! Truly useful !!!
Nice idea - but use with extreme caution Rated 2 out of 5 stars
FEBE is fine for backing up your extensions, which it does extremely well. It is much (and I mean much) less good at restoring your user data. In particular, it seems utterly unable to restore usernames and passwords - I've tested it on three machines and get the same results on all of them. Use with extreme caution, and back up all your important login data via hand first...This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.1).

great ideal but never works Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Great ideal! Too bad it never works! Not user friendly no clear instructions. Scheduler never works. Can't manually initiate. Symantec Ghost & even bash (Linux...except for WLAN...) is easier to use. The bottom line is that something as simple as backing up browser extensions should be an easy task. There should be no need to read any info anything or visit a website site to look for instructions for such a basic task.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.1).
Publish feed via FTP Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Instead of packaging all of my extensions into a big file, I would love to be able to automatically publish a list of my extensions (RSS, JSON, CSV, etc) to a web or FTP server. The list would have the version and URL (and/or UUID) of the extension. So someone else (including myself on another computer) could synchronize & install the same extensions.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.1).
Super Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I think it should be integrated into firefoxThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.1).
Works Well Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This extension works good.Backed up everything for me smoothly.But a "backup every time Firefox is closed" option should be there.Then it would become a total beauty and an install and forget extension.
Great work anyway.Kudos to the developer.
