I try to backup history. Which file is supposed to backup?

Is it possible to backup extensions and themes?

Ausgewählte Lösung

The bookmarks and history are both stored in the same places.sqlite database.

You backup specific files with Firefox closed to the current profile folder.

  • bookmarks and history: places.sqlite
  • favicons: favicons.sqlite
  • bookmark backups: compressed .jsonlz4 JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder
  • cookies.sqlite for the Cookies
  • formhistory.sqlite for saved autocomplete Form Data
  • logins.json (passwords) and key4.db (58+) or key3.db (57 and older) (decryption key) for Passwords saved in the Password Manager
    if you only have key3.db then make sure to remove an existing key4.db
  • cert9.db (58+) or cert8.db (57 and older) for (intermediate) certificates stored in the Certificate Manager
    if you only have cert8.db then make sure to remove an existing cert9.db
  • persdict.dat for words you added to the spelling checker dictionary
  • permissions.sqlite for Permissions and possibly content-prefs.sqlite for other website specific data (Site Preferences)
  • sessionstore.jsonlz4 for open tabs and pinned tabs (see also the sessionstore-backups folder)

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

What about extensions and theme?

You can backup the extensions folder, but backing up extension's data is complicated as this data is stored in local storage (indexedDB; storage folder in the profile folder) and the UUID to link this to the extension is stored in prefs.js (visible on about:config under extensions.webextensions.uuids). You can see this extension info in about:debugging under "This Firefox".
