Any way to Undo a sync? Removed all my add-ons.

Posted

So I have a few machines that are setup to Sync with each other. I got a new laptop and am using my old one as a Test machine. I added the new one to my Sync setup which worked great. I then uninstalled all the add-ons from the old laptop but forgot to Disconnect it from Sync first. Now it removed all my add-ons from all my Firefoxes. Is there any way to undo that so I don't have to go try to remember what add-ons I had and go find them all again?

I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.


These can't get your data back, but will help in the future.

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backups of files that you choose.

OPIE {web link} Import/Export extension preferences
