Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Thank you!

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.

Did work well until recently. Now it doesn´t back up any more. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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.

I cannot duplicate the problem with FEBE not remembering preferences. Please start a thread in the support forum http://www.customsoftwareconsult.com/forum/index.php or the alternate forum http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=2927423 and I will help you troubleshoot the problem.

looks like amateur, buggy software Rated 2 out of 5 stars

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.

One of the best extension for Firefox lovers,thanks.
Una delle migliori estensioni per gli amanti di Firefox,grazie.

Very good addon, but is it possible to save the backup in more than one location ? If it is, how do we type it into the Save In Location ? ? If not, perhaps this simple feature can be added.

Yes, you can

You can set up cloud servers and external locations in FEBE Options > Cloud Services > Other backup locations (second tab).

Like a bike with bells and whistles but no wheels, did not actually work. This is on Redhat Linux.

Set up a backup on shutdown, nothing happened.

Clicked on Perform backup now, did something then froze my browser which had to be killed.

It was uninstalled.

If you leave a post on the support forum, I'll try to find out what the problem is.


OOOOHHHHH that alert tone Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know if FEBE actually works, why, because the pulse style alert tone is so loud and piercing it literally makes using FEBE a nerve racking experience. I am glad I wasn't wearing headphones.
I am keen to try FEBE, perhaps I have to turn all sound off and configure FEBE.

On a plus side, the alerts can be turned off in the Advanced>Sounds page so with the sounds off, I configured it to backup every 7 days and it worked brilliantly so I give it 5 stars.

Excellent tool, don't miss this one! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After facing an issue of never-ending backup with FF 35.2 and FEBE (yes, very old ones), I have upgraded to recent versions FF 37.0.2 and FEBE 8.6 yesterday and it works like a charm again. Excellent experience and a must-have tool for both home and company machines. Contributing! Thank you a ton, Chuck!

Really good add-on, but for now does not work with Firefox Developer Edition x64 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a really good add-on. The only downside is that it is not working with latest Firefox Developer Edition for 64 bit Windows (http://mzl.la/1zVV4vw) - at least in my case. FEBE 8.6 is unable to read any configuration and literally does nothing.The workaround for me was using FEBE 5.8.2 - it works almost as it did before: http://bit.ly/eGJnMA
My OS is Windows 8.1.1 Pro x64 PL and browser Firefox Developer Edition 39.0a2 x64 PL.

Works perfectly. Transferred all settings, autocomplete history, everything from my old laptop to my PC instantly. I couldn't have asked for more!

Great job sir ^_^

個別に「復元」ができる魅力は代えがたい。 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

FEBE-8.0.5 を利用していた際、Backup の動作中に Freeze (Loop)をすることがあったため、利用を中止し、削除(uninstall)してしまいましたが、(install し、customize した add-ons を)個別に「復元」ができる魅力は代えがたく、再度、(FEBE-8.5.2 で)利用を始めてみました。
FEBE-8.5.2 は、相変わらずの古い蛍光灯の如きに(一呼吸も二呼吸も)遅れる応答性(Response)には戸惑わされますが、心配した神経質な反応(Freeze)は今のところ生じていません。留意して使う分には、動作が安定しているようです。
この動作中に、Firefox を操作(Re-Action)してしまったことが、Freeze の原因でした。最悪、Firefox が損傷(Crash)してしまい、(Firefox の)Refresh 機能を使わざるを得なくなったことが度々とありました。
FEBEの各機能に action しても数秒ほどの無反応状態が続いてから動作するので、その間は、ひたすらにジッと(tea break)待つことが、間違いのない使い方だと思われます。
Major-update が計画されているようなので、この start 時の判りづらさと Response の改善、Freeze をさせないための対策を望みます。

「Back to Top」は傑作品(excellent)です。

Hello tehe addons very god beatiful googleDrive and Microsof OneDrive cloud service added support future ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.3.1-signed). 

It can do it already

If your cloud drive has a local URI (such as 'C:\Users\CBaker\Google Drive') then FEBE can be configured to write to it.
