Firefox Profile Backup

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

a little tool to backup and restore your profile when formatting alot like i do.

doesn't work with multiple profiles, im too tired at 02:00 AM to do it :) LOL

if u want to give the new folder a cool firefox icon uncomment the comented lines and change "D:\My Documents\Downloads\FF_Earth.ico" to whatever u want.

nice place to find icons is :

http://iconpacks.mozdev.org/

i suggest the former.

Works great :)

1 suggestion, Can you put all the folders and files into a zipfile?

Like this extension of firefox FEBE

LOL i downloaded FEBE and its nice but too many options LOL got lost there.

i can use 7zip but it will reqire Dll's and stuff, and i prefer to keep my progs as single files.

if u want search the forum for "zip" and u will quickly find a couple of results, just download the dll and change my script abit.

besides if u create a folder called myprofile.zip and give it a nice FireFox icon it looks zipped anyways <_< LOL
