Bookmarks Backup Restore [Fx 31-56]


This add-on will stop working when Firefox 57 arrives in November 2017 and Mozilla drops support for XUL / XPCOM / legacy add-ons. It should still work on Firefox 52 ESR until ESR moves to Firefox 60 ESR in 2018 (~Q3).

Waterfox and Basilisk browsers are based on Firefox and will keep legacy add-on support.

There is no "please port it" or "please add support for it" this time, because the entire add-on eco system changes and the technology behind this kind of add-on gets dropped without replacement.


'Bookmarks Backup Restore' add-on allows accessing Libraries 'Bookmarks Backup and Restore' features through a toolbar button. It does not add any new feature to Firefox and it does not modify any existing features. The toolbar button only offers 'shortcuts' to already existing menuitems, that can be found within 'Import and Backup' button on libraries toolbar.

1. 'Library - Import and Backup - Backup...' > 'tolbar button - Bookmarks > Backup... (*.json)'
2. 'Library - Import and Backup - Restore - Choose file... > 'tolbar button - Bookmarks > Restore... (*.json)'

Open 'customizing mode' and move the button to any toolbar.

No add-on localization needed, because default locale files are used.
