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 This utility is freeware and works not only with Firefox, but also with Thunderbird, Mozilla, and Netscape.


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.)
