Hello Chuck
Is there anything I can do, to have OPIE show me 2 common addons of Firefox?

VideoDownloader
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... g/?src=api

backup of settings: sadly the developer believes using Firefox Sync is the feature do backup your settings. Rather than seeing Firefox Sync for its intent (sync aspects of your profile between devices). So I will not turn this feature on, Firefox Sync as its prone to malware (e.g. people can add their email to your Fx Profile and user receives no warning a Sync is in process). So currently no ability to get the settings.

uBlockOrigin
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... l/?src=api

backup of settings: within uBlockOrigin dashboard it does have export settings to .txt and import function. But it does not come up to do it via OPIE
chrome://ublock0/content/dashboard.html

Thankyou

You might want to try OPIE2. It is a more advanced version of OPIE and allows you to specify exactly which preferences you want to save. To be completely successful though, you would need to know all the appropriate preferences ahead of time. But at least it's a good starting place.
