MozBackup 1.4.8 – Free Firefox Backup Tool

by James 22 November 2008 4 Comments

Did you ever find yourself with all the Firefox bookmarks and passwords lost after a system crash? Well, I did, and that was frustrating. More than frustrating actually. The other day I found a freeware program called MozBackup, and that’s what I needed before the system crash. Well, at least I’ll be ready for the next one!


Basically this freeware allows you to backup and then restore if needed all the essential stuff in Firefox: bookmarks, cache, passwords, certificates, contacts, history, extensions, mail. Let’s see how it works. First you have to choose either backup or restore mode and the browser you are using. I chose backup and Firefox.

Then select the profile you want to backup.

Tick what you want to have backed up…

And then wait about a full minute.

And you’re done! The good thing is that this freeware doesn’t work just for Mozilla Firefox, but it does the job for several other programs: Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Sunbird, Flock, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite, Spicebird and Netscape.

This little free software is made by some nice people from the Czech Republic. You can download it from here it’s free!

    I was looking for something like this. Will give it a try. Can this tool automatically create periodic backup?

    Unfortunately you can’t set it to create the backups automatically. Hopefully this will be available in a future version.

    Use FEBE, a Firefox plugin. URL: https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=658
