Firefuk is sluggish, stalls, and freezes up three times a day. Crap software.

This software sucks, but Chrome is no better. It all sucks. I'm afraid to delete my browsing history because I'll lose the hundreds of passwords required for every goddam website. Thanks, tech-nerds.

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.


Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles.{web link} I use an add-on that makes backups of my user profile, Just In Case. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with the current Firefox.

Every now and then, open the profile folder and create a copy of the current profile as is to another location on your hard drive. This way you will have a backup.

If you do this each day, you will not lose much data. This should be done with Firefox Closed.

Note: In case you need to restore from these backups, you may need to overwrite old or corrupted files.

All passwords are stored in the Password Manager. History is separate from passwords.

Any other problems?
