Is mozbackup-1.5.1 still valid to back up current mozilla products, like Firefox 58+?

seems hard to understand those word, heh?
MozBackup is not being developed anymore. There are known issues and there is no time on my side to fix all issues and develop new features. Use MozBackup only on your risk.

:roll:

Hi ineuw,
Just a FWIW...

Please refer to the KB article on Manually backing up the Profile...

Much safer & easier.

Thanks, I was zipping the profile folder which I know is safe but then I remembered that mozbackup did some kind of user selectable organization, but it's really not worth bothering with it. I was just curious.

Mozbackup save my FF recently. Heckasoft backup did not do it. Nevertheless, always backup your profile, just in case.
