While there are many dedicated tools on the market that can help you clean the Internet history and other tracks on your computer, some programs were specifically built for saving the browser extensions. FEBE is one of the best examples, and it was designed to back up your Firefox extensions.

FEBE is the acronym for Firefox Environment Backup Extension, and it can only save the extensions from Firefox.

It sports a user-friendly interface that allows users to perform several actions on the go. The application provides four backup modes. The selective one allows users to choose what backup items FEBE should store for them, such as extensions or themes. Moreover, this mode offers the possibility of creating backups for bookmarks (JSON and HTML), preferences, cookies, usernames and passwords, browser history, permission, and others.

The full profile backup is able to save all the extensions and themes included in your Firefox profile, while the third mode comprises the functions of the two aforementioned profiles, making sure that all data is saved.

The alternate one allows users to switch between the selective and full profile backup mode each time FEBE runs. Furthermore, the program also includes a user-defined backup mode.

You can choose an output destination, view and clear the backup history. It is also possible to schedule your backups on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, and to select when the backup process should start: on browser startup or shutdown.

You can make FEBE ignore disabled extensions, display warnings about pending extension installs, and play different notification sounds. You may add your own music tracks, provided that the file format is WAV. The program is also able to automatically upload the backup to your Box.net account.

Overall, FEBE proves to be a handy tool for all users who need to back up Firefox extensions quickly and easily.
