MozBackup – Backup Firefox and thunderbird mail, favorites and contacts

Ever wondered how to save your bookmarks, mail, contacts, history, extensions, cache etc so that you can restore it next time when something happens to your system or you re-install your operating system or upgrade. Many of you wold be already knowing about MozBackup which is used for backing all this up in a efficient manner.

Its one of the programs i normally use as i keep on installing and uninstalling my operating system often. MozBackup is a simple utility for creating backups of Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Sunbird, Flock, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite, Spicebird and Netscape profiles.It allows you to backup mail, favorites, all your personal settings and contacts.

The program works with Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and Netscape on Windows platforms.

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.
