Create backups for your user profiles in Firefox that you can restore in case they get corrupted or wiped without too much hassle using this app
With the introduction of user-profiles for Firefox, you have the advantage of saving favorites, pages, cookies, preferences, and other settings. In the eventuality that you do not create a backup for the profile, then there is a chance to lose the data in case of a computer crash or other programs.
Simple Firefox Backup is a tiny, portable tool that provides a quick way to create Firefox backups and hence, make sure you can recover the data if the data gets corrupted or wiped for various reasons.
Create backups and restore them with just one click
The program does not require installation, so you can start using it as soon as you decompress the archive in the desired location on your computer. The interface is user-friendly and consists of a single window that displays the backups of Firefox with a timestamp, so you can easily find the one you want.
It would have been nice if the program allowed you to add a comment as well, as it would be simpler to find a particular backup. This is especially true is you are making various modifications, such as adding addins that have not been thoroughly tested or in a beta phase, for instance.
The idea behind the tool is to provide a straightforward option to create a backup for Firefox, but without changing any files or reading the passwords, in case you are concerned about privacy. You can create as many backups as you need, whereas restoring them is done just as conveniently with just one click.
Allows you to customize the contents of the backup
It is worth mentioning that the app creates a backup with 9 files by default. Then again, if you would like to modify that you can access the Open Config File from the File menu, search for search.json.mozlz4 and modify the last value to 0. To change it back you can change the same value to 1. All in all, Simple Firefox Backup is a tool that offers a simple alternative to creating backups and restoring them with a click of a button.
