What we need is a FF profile backup program that functions in Windows 10. Mozbackup and FEBE are out dated. FEBE never worked well on my machines.

You can manually copy the entire directory structure for a backup or you could consider a regular backup software. Something like Acronis, Paragon or NovaBackup.

Why not just copy the profile, as Dan suggested & it will be automatically renamed......"xxxxxxxx.Firefox version xxxx - copy."
Save to wherever you desire.
Or...Use something like...

> http://www.backup-utility.com/free-backup-software.html

FWIW...
I use Acronis True Image to back up my "C" drive, but it's not available as a free version.

I have image backups of all my computers, but Mozbackup was a convenience-easy to execute..

Sadly Mozbackup has been abandoned. I don't know what he refers to in the announcement as issues.

I am using FireSave (and ThunderSave) since long time, both are simple and free.

You can always use a combination of 7z and batch files in order to backup the profile folder. I personally prefer to use Autohotkey for automatic tasks locally.

Just got a new Windows 10 Gigabyte laptop and Mozbackup works perfectly.
