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.

"saved again folks!"

April 10, 2010  |  By nyartist

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.4.9

Pros

I've been using what I considered the best Thunderbird back up program called Eazy Backup by ajsystems. Well, today it crashed and I needed a back up. I found Moz Backup and gave it a try and WOW!!! it worked like a charm - and so easy to use.

Cons

Haven't found a con yet unless it's the fact that there is no support for it.

"Saved me more than once!"

April 09, 2010  |  By bADaSShAMMER

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.4.9

Pros

What a great, simple way to backup and restore T-Bird. After a recent OS reinstall, MozBackup put me right back where I was.

Cons

None thus far.

Summary

If you use T-Bird as your mail client and have a large number of emails and addresses, this is for you.

Cons

nothing to say here

"What a lifesaver!"

October 30, 2009  |  By tracyedw

 |  Version: MozBackup 1.4.9

Pros

So easy to use.
Transfers everything you need without having to go through all the steps listed on help sites.
Great for Firefox and Thunderbird.

Cons

Thunderbird does take awhile, but I'll take it over having to go through all the work that I read about elsewhere.

Summary

I needed to transfer Thunderbird to my new computer and was really confused by all the help articles that I found online. Finally I came across one that recommended MozBackup. Thank God!
This transfers your whole Firefox profile, not just your bookmarks. That means all your saved user names and passwords. For Thunderbird, it transfers all of your mailboxes, all the mail in them, even all the mail that's been sitting in your In box.
It was so easy to use, and using the new computer was just like I was using the old computer.
I plan on using MozBackup regularly as a precaution so that I always have a recent version of both.
