Hi guys, does anybody know a way to get a backup of the search engines (the ones on the top right of firefox) and recover it to another computer/OS?
This is really annoying, as I format a lot (and use a lot of PCs) and really need the quick custom search engines, so going to the Mozilla.org is great for centralised downloading point but I am getting tired of always do the same thing.
So, if anyone comes with a solution, i will be really grateful.
But in a case where the only thing you want to be similar between the profile with the custom search engines and the new profile may only be the custom set of search engines?
In some situations, it’s helpful to have a number of versions of Firefox, either for taking advantage of extensions which aren’t fully compatible between versions. In others, it’s helpful to have same versions of Firefox, with different sets of extensions; in cases where some extensions may conflict within one profile.
In such instances, it would be great if there were a search engine backup extension. So I’m asking if anyone has heard of a way, or if such an extension may exist…
As for a Firefox "ADD-ON" or "EXTENSION" specifically designed for saving or backing up ONLY one's personal list of custom search engines; added to one's search engine list using the "Add to Search Bar" extension, I haven't found anything. That's why I'm asking.
At this time as far as I can tell - and please chime in if you know of a more direct solution - there should be a way through backing up the whole profile directory, building a new one, removing whatever you don't need BUT the custom search engines and then building anything else back into that.
Can anyone tell me if this should work?
If so, does anyone know of any pointers that can ensure that a novice to such an exercise might be successful?
If there isn't a more direct solution, what would the most direct way to do this be?
