MozBackup is a free utility for creating profiles backup copy and restore them for the following browsers: Mozilla Firefox 1.0 - 2.0, Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 - 2.0, Mozilla Suite 1.7 - 1,7x, SeaMonkey 1.0a - 1.1, and Netscape 7.x.

This small and easy to use application creates profile backup files contacts, emails, cache, history, bookmarks, extensions, etc. and restore them later on.

The users of these browsers normally work with the default profile, but programmers and multiple users of the same PC might need to set different accounts and profiles for the same browser, so they can backup their files by using this application.

The program interface displays a 'wizard' to guide the user to accomplish the backup and restore operations, and it saves everything (profiles, etc.) in a unique file. It shows the available profiles for the selected browser so the user can select what to save and the folder and path where to be saved.

Afterwards, the application asks for a password to protect the backup file (if you wish) and it displays the Set Password window. The program ask the user now which items he wants to save in the backup file, including address books (contacts), emails, history, sidebars, bookmarks, styles, extensions, passwords to save, certificates, cookies, etc. so they can be selected by the user to be included in the backup file.

The restoring process is much easier and the user will be helped by the 'wizard' again to performe this operation trouble-free.
