How to backup your Firefox profile regularly

A few days ago, I did a post telling you two ways to backup your profile. But as you do know that I’m very lazy in everything, I think this manual way uses a lot of my energy :P . I found a very nice Firefox extension, that’ll backup your profile (everything!) and store it wherever you want and the best part is that it can be scheduled at whatever time you want.

Firefox Environment Backup Extension

Also known as FEBE is the Firefox extension I’m talking about. 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. It’s a really very fast to back up and save it where ever you want.

Well it’s not that, it just backups your extensions, but also themes, and (optionally) your bookmarks, preferences, passwords, cookies and just about everything else Firefox offers (it can even backup/restore your entire profile).

I would recommend every Firefox user to install this and save the hard time you might have after losing your Firefox data ever (I hope not!). Click here to install it, or visit their homepage.
