Backing Up a Profile

 < Day Day Up > 

A user profile consists of the contents of folder xxxxxxxx.default (and all its subfolders, as well). A backup of this folder can serve as a method to save your profile.

Another backup technique is to use the MozBackup utility from http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/. This utility is freeware and works not only with Firefox, but also with Thunderbird, Mozilla, and Netscape.

Tip

The total size of the profile can exceed 5MB. However, by using a compressed folder for the destination, you can reduce the size of these files to a more manageable 1.3MB. (These sizes are typical but not absolute.)
