Firefox Environment Backup Extension

I just wondering how the heck i almost ended up always installing every one of my firefox extensions whenever the window$ ™ crack and crash and burns. FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) saves the day..

FEBE

from the site I quote :

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up — It will actually rebuild your extensions individually into installable .xpi files. Now you can easily synchronize your office and home browsers.

FEBE backs up your extensions, themes, and (optionally) your bookmarks, preferences, passwords, cookies and just about everything else Firefox offers (it can even backup/restore your entire profile).

Version 5.0 allows for user-defined backups. Single files or entire directories can be specified to back up data for programs like Thunderbird, Greasemonkey, etc. –end quote

So, what i like best is it’s capability to re-build my extension(s) into installable .xpi files. Nice !!

Your Mileage May Vary, and please be advised that this is still my preliminary evaluation. We’ll see if this FEBE stands up to the test.
