Neat method of 'backing up' profiles ETC in Firefox and Thunderbird
If you only need to back up Firefox, an excellent, perhaps superior, alternative is the free FEBE Firefox extension. Initially designed for backing up extensions, it now offers the options of backing up various sections of your profile such as bookmarks, cookies, auto-complete, etc. Most importantly, it allows you to back up your entire profile just by checking a single box. Full or selective restore is available. Thanks to site visitor Anupam Shriwatri for the suggestion. FEBE is available from here: http://softwarebychuck.com/febe/febe.html
Edit to Add : I timed my backup fro a certain time (today), and also specified what I wanted backed up...All Good !....did the job on time and the folder I specified the backup to go to now has those details in it )

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
