Now that the API requirements have changed, I can no longer use Chuck Baker's FEBE - and he is unable to create a version that will work as it would require access to user's bookmarks, passwords, cookies, etc.

Is there no longer any way to backup Firefox?

I continue to use Mozbackup for FF and TB.

MozBackup is pretty lame in comparison to FEBE and it always was very buggy at restoring.
