How do I back up/restore my Firefox history? I save my bookmarks regularly and got your info on Firefox profiles. I did a quick scan but didn't see info on Firefox history data. Thanks.

There was a legacy add-on that did this.

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.


Note: History and bookmarks are stored in the places.sqlite file.
