MozBackup is a small but very powerful software that can create backups for your Mozilla products. It can come in handy in case something bad happens and you lose your profile settings.

Wizard-like GUI which helps you select profile and back it up

The program’s interface consists of a simple wizard in which you can choose the operation you want to perform (backup or restore a profile), as well as select the Mozilla application (e.g. Firefox, Thunderbird, even their portable versions).

In order to continue, the selected program must be closed. Now you can pick the profile you want to backup and set the destination directory.

Select parameters to save and password-protect the results

The backup file will have the PCV format. Plus, you can secure the file by choosing a password (this is especially useful if you share your computer with multiple users, so we suggest you apply this option).

In the final step, you can select the details you want to backup. They can be from general settings, emails and address books to extensions, bookmarks, saved passwords, downloaded files list and certificates. Restoring the backup is similar.

Conclusion and performance

The program uses a very small amount of system resources and manages to quickly complete a task. It does not have a Help file yet it is so simple to use, that beginners do not even need one. We strongly recommend MozBackup to all users, of any level of experience, since it offers a simple solution when it comes to preserving your settings for Mozilla applications.
