Tip & How-To about Mozilla Firefox
Developed by Chuck Baker of CustomSoftwareConsult aka SoftwareByChuck
FEBE - Backup the Profile + Bookmarks etc.
CLEO - Creates the custom XPI
Use this combopack from CSC to package all you favourite add-ons into one XPI installer great for those reinstalls of Firefox or for U3 Firefox v22.214.171.124 from Sandisk use this older version of the combopack available HERE as an XPI
If you have the later versions of Firefox v3.6.x then you will need to install the latest version of FEBE and CLEO, this requires you to set the folder options to SHOW so that you can access the Extensions and Themes folders in the %appdata% for Mozilla Firefox otherwise you can't backup each FF profile that is stored there.
NOTE: I stopped using Firefox's own bookmarks in favour of DELICIOUS bookmarks which you can also have as an XPI
UNRESPONSIVE SCRIPT ERRORS
Install the FEBE Debug XPI a special debug version will create a log of the items it is zipping. Depending on where the error is occurring, the log will display either the last backed up item or the item currently being backed up it will also verify your XPI add-ons directory for valid GUID's
In this case only one extensions GUI is possibly corrupt I used strict checking mode in this case FEBE removed the two suspect folder contents for these two XPI, and will totally remove them on FF restart.
skipscreen@skipscreen - this is removed due to UNEXPECTED ERROR I suggest you try installing the latest version
siteinfo@wmtips - this is removed due to invalid GUID
