Only Quick Backup partially works in the newest version Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Normal backup doesn't work anymore after the latest add-on update. It makes only Quick Backup and for only part of the desired add-ons. I hope you'll fix it soon. It is great add-on when it works!

Please use the support forum

If you start (or join) a thread on the support forum, I can help resolve the problem.

I love your product but i cant even get logged into your forum. Numerous attempts and a new password sent to me. My issue is that nothing happens once you click on the start profile restore. You used to have a progress bar, don't see that when I click start and have tried using 2 versions back. Help please!
I don't want to give a sub 5 star rating but i cant get on the forum :-(

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Before the latest update of a few days ago, this addon worked great. After the latest update, I'm giving it 3 stars because something broke. When it works, it's 5 stars. I'll keep checking the support forums for a fix to my problem.

What problem?

Have you already posted the problem in the support forum? I can't fix it if I don't know what it is.

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 hang-up (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(hang-up)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、hang-up 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、hang-up 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). 

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.

See FEBE options > Cloud services

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Simply does not work. Failed me when I needed it most--when I tried doing a profile restore. It would put up the confirmation dialog, I'd click OK, then ... nothing. Stare into the void. And it had a really annoying habit of flashing dialogs that then seemed to disappear. Sometimes they were underneath other windows, other times they went into a bit bucket somewhere.

In short, this thing wasn't even worth the time it took me to write this review and spit.

Edit: I do not owe it to you to seek support before writing a review. Your extension did not work, and got the review it deserves.

Posting a message in the FEBE support forum would have been more productive than writing a vilifying review. I would have explained an alternate way of restoring your profile.

Tried saving extensions and loading them on a different machine to save the trouble of doing them one by one. FEBE did not work.

[FF34] A beautiful "Work In Progress" ;) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Elegant coding Chuck! I'm giving you 5 stars even though I can't seem to get the [[When to backup]] scheduler options to display. But I trust you to troubleshoot (any) bug and will be patient.

I'm using FEBE exclusively for one function only: BACKUP MY HISTORY, and do it every time I close out Firefox. Yes yes I know it can do so much more, but on my old computer I will be pleased to release serious memory -and- unlimited bandwidth for this function. I don't know why it never dawned on me before: All these years I've been backing up my Bookmarks, as though this data included the thousands of pages I've browsed. There is nothing more aggravating than trying to locate a web address I last visited some years back, and finally realizing for the 1000th time that a text-accessible VAULT of my browsing history is not included in my Bookmark backups. ((HELLO?)) The forensic value of being able to summon a web address you last visited years and years ago is of signal importance. I don't know why my schedule options are greyed out but have confidence All Will Be Revealed. ;)

Not working with firefox 35 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work with firefox 35, even the latest beta, doesn't work properly! Please fix it because i need to create a new profile and i need Febe!

Update to FEBE v8.3rc

It works for me.

Excellent, but with Suggestions for OPIE-like Extension Pref Files and Disabled Extensions Folder or List Rated 4 out of 5 stars

v8.3 resolved issue with hanging due when Permissions selectable backup option was checked. I would suggest integrating OPIE into this extension, or otherwise adding support for automatic backups optionally exporting extension preferences to separate files, and also adding option to export disabled extensions to a separate subdirectory and/or allowing exporting lists of installed, enabled, and disabled extensions.

I have a lot of history and many bookmarks which I like to preserve, however this extension does sometimes hang when exporting that large number (though it usually finishes history and bookmarks items after waiting a minute for each of those). Any optimization that can be done with exporting those items specifically would be appreciated.

Excellent - small problem Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect addon - well done, developer.

One thing though...FEBE Options window has a yellow background (both the window and the buttons). This happens on Firefox 34.0.5. When on Firefox 33.1.1, everything seems OK.


Thank you for your quick reply, Chuck. Unfortunately, I can't access the site - I've tried that before, as I wanted to post the "yellow" thingy issue there, not within a review.

I guess I'll just wait till the next FEBE version/update for a solution. In the meantime, I'll use the 8.0.5 version which works perfectly with the new Firefox 34.0.5 anyway.

For anyone who's reading this, don't let it stop you from using FEBE - it's a great addon, and this problem is a minor one.

Thanks for the kudos! As for yellow background, there are ongoing discussions at:


Beyond Cool & Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank You!!! My first attempt glitched, so I figured... "great, another add-on that sounds too good to be true and fails, bummer". Then, my 2nd try went off without a hitch and every export/backup has worked flawlessly ever since. This thing is beyond awesome.
I have 4 computers in front of me for various tasks (1 for play), not to mention, being the goto nerd that everyone asks to help set them up... This has saved me so much time, my appreciation is near endless. Once I finish college and am a bit more stable, you can rest assured that a generous donation is headed your way.

Hi Chuck,

FEBE 8.0.5 always worked great.
I set to backup "[X] Both".

But now,
with latest FF v. 33.0.
(in Linux Ubuntu 12.04),
FEBE keeps the progress window
open forever:

"Please wait for backup to complete,
...this window will close then...".

But the window never closes,
even after waiting many minutes.

looking at the FEBE backup folder,
there IS a big ".FBU" file there:
with the correct,
present date- and time- stamp!

(Progress window
used to close after 1 minute or less before,
and show me the backup stats page,
with all addons, etc.).

Now, the stats page with addons, etc,
never shows up ...

Help! worked fine before...

GREAT add-on and it's so easy to use and set as you want. This is just what i needed if i ever have to reinstall FF. No more worries with my extensions, add-ons or bookmarks. This gives me peace of mind since i have over 80 bookmarks and about 12 add-ons. I was surprised how easy it's to set up just like you want and i would call this a "set and forget it" tool. Self explanatory instructions so really no need to scratch your head. Thank you Chuck for an excellent tool for us FF users. This is worth my $10, (I know you where asking for $5)... it's really that good... If you guys are unsure about your FF add-ons and bookmark backups just get this add-on... you won't regret it.... guaranteed ...
