Firefox in de problemen

Dat zal je altijd zien. Heb je je Firefox zo in elkaar gezet dattie precies doet wat je wilt, gaat er #$%!!@ iets mis. Om onverklaarbare reden werkten extensions die geupgrade werden niet meer na die upgrade. Klaarblijkelijk iets uit de haak met je profiel. Een voor een gingen mijn extensions er dus aan.
Nu heb ik dus een heel profiel opnieuw moeten inrichten en al mijn RSS feeds weer moeten instellen. En dat terwijl ik een dag eerder onderstaand stukje van Lifehacker in mijn Furl had gezet, dom dom dom! Dus nu allemaal FEBE en CLEO intalleren voordat het te laat is:

Windows only: The Firefox Extension Backup Extension (FEBE) lets you backup all of your extensions, themes, bookmarks, preferences, and even cookies (you can pick and choose if you don’t want to backup everything), while it’s counterpart, CLEO (Compact Library Extension Organizer) bundles everything into a single .xpi file that you can install on any installation of Firefox.

FEBE and CLEO together do the job of my recent Firefox extension packs feature – but the whole process seems a bit easier. The extensions are still a little buggy (I had trouble getting CLEO to work), but this is a nice step forward in making extension packages that are easy to move around and install. You can package up all of your extensions, save them some place handy (I’d probably keep one in my Gmail), and install the .xpi any time you’ve got a fresh profile or install of Firefox. Windows only, for now.

  1. / I’m not sure I could bear to read it: just thrinking about my past pets still gets me all teary-eyed. I lost three cats and a dog whitin twelve months (cancer times three, and heart failure), which came a couple of years after the sudden loss of a cat from thrombosis. Not sure I could handle the death of any more pets, I got a pair of kittens who’d live for years to come. Fate laughed at me, and hit one of them with a car eighteen months later.My pets are very special to me (well, the cats are; the Demon Puppy I feel rather more ambiguously about!). A lot of people don’t understand how just a cat’ can be so important, but I really think that’s their loss.
