Editors' Review

As great as it is to have tools such as Firefox and Thunderbird, backing them up can be a tedious process. MozBackup is a tiny program that makes saving and restoring all your bookmarks, extensions, and other personal settings a streamlined and stress-free experience.

The program works with Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and Netscape on Windows platforms. It doesn't work with Firefox Portable, Sunbird, Songbird, or Flock, but for standard Windows iterations of the programs in the Mozilla suite, it's almost silly to not use this program.

Close the program you want to back up, then run MozBackup. Choose backup or restore, then the application. Select the program profile and the location to save the backup, and whether you want to password protect the file. Lastly, choose which parts of the profile you want to save or restore, which range from from e-mails and address books to extensions and history, from certificates, and passwords to bookmarks and your cache.

To back up Netscape, choose the Mozilla Suite option.

Restoring a profile works the same way, but what makes the app extremely useful is that it doesn't differentiate from a restore and a clean install. So if you've got a specific or complicated set of extensions and settings on your work machine, and merely thinking about how to transfer them makes you want to revert to using an Underwood, MozBackup should quell your fears.

"A "Must Have" for Mozilla users"

September 06, 2014  |  By hdwhit75

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.5.1

Pros

Simple to install. Simple to operate. Clear user interface.

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

MozBackup is a program for backing up and restoring your profiles (including your e-mails) from Firefox or Thunderbird. It may work on other Mozilla products as well, but I only have Firefox and Thunderbird installed. Start the program, tell it where you want the backup saved and MozBackup takes are of the rest. Restoring a profile is just as easy.

"MozBackup is too cool for words!"

May 29, 2014  |  By harster

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.5.1

Pros

It did EXACTLY what I wanted with very little trouble.

Cons

Don't know of any - I've only used it twice now.

Summary

We bought a new laptop - wanted to put all Thunderbird/Gmail account info on the new laptop (three accounts). Only one address book appeared on the laptop, so.... I downloaded the MozBackup install file to the old desktop PC, installed it, ran the backup, just for emails and address books. Then I put the install file and the backup into Dropbox. On the laptop I moved the two files from Dropbox to the laptop, ran the install, and then restored the files using MozBackup. When I opened Thunderbird it was all there. Damn - that is so cool! Donate to this guy for writing such a great, free program!

"Great Software"

December 31, 2012  |  By ges

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.5.1

Pros

I use this often. When I restore from a computer backup that is a few days old, I first run this to make a fresh backup of my mail program PostBox. I put those PostBox backups made with this software on an external drive. Then I restore from my partition backup and of course it has "old mail". After the restore from the partition backup, I just run his program again and restore the backup it made of PostBox just a little bit earlier and my mail is restored perfectly and everything is current. I even get a choice as to what I want to restore, i.e. mail / settings / etc.

Cons

I find none and it has never let me down.

Summary

I use Symantec and Malwarebytes and it never detected any malware or viruses associated with this program. And while I've had it installed for a long time, I don't recall any tool bars but of course I watch the install screens closely and uncheck anything like that if I don't want it as I presume most folks will do. I use it on my desktop (Win 7 64x) and my laptop (Vista 64x) without issue. I am so glad I found it. Thanks to the author(s).

"What's this garbage doing here?"

December 09, 2012  |  By Javaks

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.5.1

Pros

zip zero nada

Cons

After explicitly tell the installer not to install yet another garbage toolbar, it did, and also changed my home page to theirs. Oh, and after 15 minutes of running through my Thunderbird files, it told me backup file couldn't be created. PIECE OF JUNK.

"Flawlessly moved Thunderbird to my laptop"

July 25, 2012  |  By rptink

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.5.1

Pros

I have a complex structure of folders into which my incoming mail is sorted according to the message filters I have set up. I had been aware of Mozbackup for some time but the writeups didn't mention how it handled folders and filters. All I can say is, it handled the transfer flawlessly. The transfer file was over 3GB but no glitches. This is very useful software. I will keep it. Thanks to the programmer(s) for providing it.

Cons

The flawless handling of message filters should be mentioned in the description of the product.

Summary

The best thing you can say about software is that it does what it was intended to do without doing things it wasn't intended to do. This is great software.
