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.

"Excellent tool for backing up Thunderbird & Firefox!"

February 21, 2008  |  By danielkwood

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.4.7

Pros

It's really easy to use, small file and backs up all your files/settings as well as restoring them. Its excellent if you need to format your computer/reinstall Windows or if you are transferring files to another computer...you can use this program to make a backup of Firefox and/or Thunderbird and then copy it to a thumb drive. Easy to install and use. No spyware/ads and its free!

Cons

The only thing I didn't like is that it takes a while to backup a lot of emails and you don't know if the program is hanging or not (you just have to wait) - but to give the program its credit, I did backup about 2000 emails.

"good but"

December 22, 2007  |  By wil_w_s

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.4.7

Pros

It does back up most of my extensions and made it way easier to copy my profile on to my wifes computer.

Cons

It did not back up my whole profile or plugins and I had to reconfigure some of my extensions for the way I use them...BUT it did save me a lot of time searching around for extensions. Just make sure you take a screen shot of your extensions or save your "my config" so you can see what it didn't back up.

"Does exactly what it promises"

November 19, 2007  |  By mikeskid

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.4.7

Pros

I routinely backup Firefox and Thunderbird. Options as to which parts of the program you wish to back up and that's that. It isn't super fast, but fast enough for me. I feel better knowing that there are backups to restore easily

"Simple backup utility for all Mozilla products ( I only use FireFox, though )"

November 17, 2007  |  By Pcfreakske2000

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.4.7

Pros

Easy interface and easy to make a backup of all Mozilla products. I use only Mozilla FireFox, though.

You can decide what items to back up and which ones not to backup.

Cons

None that I can think off.

I have FireFox Preloader installed and I had to unload it before making a backup.

"very handy!"

November 11, 2007  |  By bry27

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.4.7

Pros

great little app! wish i had this years ago. did exactly what is says it should. and there was NOTHING misleading about this at all, it backs up your profiles just like it says it does. read what your downloading people! and if you *did* read the description and still think this is a backup program then you probably should not even be using a computer. if you doubt me, go read his other reviews.

Cons

haven't found one yet. and believe me i tried to force it to break but couldn't.
