Bookmark Backup is a simple extension that helps to keep your bookmarks (and optionally other Firefox settings) safe. Each time Firefox is closed, a copy of your bookmarks file will be made to a backup location. If Firefox's bookmarks become corrupted or lost, find the most recent uncorrupted backup and copy it into your profile folder. By default the backups can be found in the Backups folder inside Firefox's profile folder, though this location can be changed in Bookmark Backup's Options dialog.
Additionally, thanks to code contributed by Nickolay Ponomarev, other files may also be backed up along with the bookmarks file. You can specify which files to backup in the Options dialog. Just check the box for each type of setting you want backed up, any other files can be listed in the following text box separated by a | character. Please refer to Henrik Gemal's profile directory information page for details about what data is stored in each file.
Please remember, this extension should be used in addition to a regular profile backup not as a replacement.
Note: Bookmark Backup 0.4 and above requires Firefox 1.5 or above. If you're still using Firefox 1.0.x or earlier you should Install Bookmark Backup 0.3.3 instead.
Note: Firefox 1.5 now makes its own backups of your bookmarks, therefore this extension is only useful if you want to backup other settings or to control where the backups are stored.
