Backup Firefox: Simplest Method Ever

Even there are so many competitors in the browser market for the Firefox, the Firefox is still at the top.

Why the Firefox get more popularity?
+ More than 150,000,000 addons are available, and also they are in use for making user job more simple.

+ Up to 50,000 userscripts for enhancing the user interface with the site.

+ Much faster.

+ More compatibility phase with most sites.

+ Better stability.

+ One of the major hidden advantages is that; the Firefox Settings can be easily backup in order to move it elsewhere.

For backup purpose, there are several softwares are available over the internet. In addition, they are free of cost. (I suggest mozBackup.)
Even so, they are quite time consuming.

To defeat this difficulty & as time is more important part of everyone, there is a another simple way of backing-up the Firefox.

I suggest you this method for backup the Firefox.

Backup Firefox: Simplest Method Ever

+ No need of any software. It's a manual backup process.
+ Its truly easy.
+ More efficient than any other software.
+ safer.
You just follow the steps below to manual backup and restoration of the Firefox data.
1. Open My Computer.

2. Go to Window-drive (mostly C: drive where the windows are installed).

3. Then go to: \Documents and Settings\USER_ACCOUNT_NAME\Application Data.(If you don't know USER_ACCOUNT_NAME go to Control Panel, then User Accounts.)

4. And now copy the Mozilla named folder to other drive or somewhere else for safety. (Say E:\Mozilla)

5. You have taken the backup of the Firefox. And keep it in safe position.

1. When you re-install the Firefox again or if you want to keep same Settings in your office or at different location, you have to just copy the Backup-folder (E:\Mozilla) and paste it to the same directory (windows-drive:\Documents and Settings\USER_ACCOUNT_NAME\Application Data\)

2. It may prompt to replace the file, just say ‘Yes’ or ‘Yes to all’. (But it’s better to shift+delete the old/existing installed Mozilla folder and paste the Backup-folder)

3. That’s it, now all your data remains as it is, without using any external software.

You can compress data by Winzip or Winrar, this will reduce the size more than 50%.
