    MozBackup no longer supported

    I was setting up my wife's new laptop and went to download MozBackup only to find a message that it has issues and the author no longer has time to support it. He advises that it's used at our own risk. As far as I understand it, it backs up the user's profile, bookmarks etc. Is there anything else out there that does anything similar? I believe it does much more than just exporting bookmarks.

    Some of you use Palemoon. Does this have a backup method similar to MozBackup?
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    It creates a complete back up of the Thunderbird e-mail program and Firefox and FF based browsers. Note that it hasn't been updated since 2012. Regardless, MozBackup works perfectly on W10 (and did so previously in W8), so I see no reason to stop using it. You can encrypt the back up files if you wish to keep them secure.

    Yup.

    FWIW, MozBackup still works fine for me.

    Thanks for the link to the Palemoon backup Tony.

    I wasn't saying it doesn't work, only that the author said it has issues and to use it 'at your own risk'. I prefer to know what the issues are!

    If memory serves me, almost all, but very very few extensions are perfectly backed up. I use FEBE to make backups of Firefox plugins, extensions.

    Yes, but it still works for Seamonkey, even 64-bit Seamonkey! With nothing equivalent the 2012 last updated version rolls along.
