Can't backup Profile

Problems and experiences with my extensions on the Windows 7 platform.

Can't backup Profile

Postby racatacX2 » Fri Jul 08, 2011 7:20 am

Hello, i have some problems with FEBE.
I use the FEBE icon in the toolbar but when i choose "FEBE options" the window open but its clear/vacuum!
When i choose "save" the options window open and i can see and edit the options but it dont save anything!
There is not any error message.
The only thing that work is the "quick save", but it save only the extensions!

I use FF 5 and FEBE 7 beta 7 with win 7 64, do you know where is the problem?!

There is not any error message.

Are you using Console² and looking in the Tools > Error Console and filtering (Search:) for "febe"?

What locale (language) is your Firefox?

My language is french.

Console² isn't compatible with FF5 but in the Tools > Error Console i can see only one error for febe, it's:
febe is not defined
javascript:%20febe

It might have something to do with the fr locale not being complete. I hope to release FEBE 7.0 RC1 or Final in about 10 days when most of the locales are translated.

I am using Firefox 5.0.1 and Windows 7. I have installed FEBE 7.01. I went to options and set it for backup at browser shutdown. That did not work. I then set it for Scheduled backup and that did not work either. I have manually backed up FEBE twice. I am not a computer geek and so do not know what the problem is. I was using FEBE in Firefox 3 and had n problem. I would appreciate any assistance or advise you can give me.

When upgrading to FEBE 7 from a previous release, it is important to run FEBE Options > Advanced > Clear FEBE preferences and FEBE Options > Advanced > Verify extension directory.

The clearing of preferences removes outdated FEBE options that can cause conflicts, and the extension verification cleans up garbage leftover from previous Firefox upgrades.

Are you running a full profile or a selective backup?

When you run Verify extension directory are any errors found? Do you let FEBE correct them?

When you run Check AddonManager functionality, is each addon listed?

Do you have any items checked in your FEBE Ignore List? (FEBE Options > what to backup > Ignore list)

How to let FEBE correct them?!

Yes i think each addon listed when i run Check AddonManager functionality, but i know some are not compatible with FF5.

At the end of the list there is:
Change FEBE options and try again.
DownloadStatusBar(0.9.8 ).xpi Type error: addon.name is null

and there is a lot lot of errors again in the error console.

Please post the FEBE related errors in the error console (Tools > Error Console) using the Console² extension for error checking.

Try this: Open and clear the Error console. Leave it open and perform a backup. After a few seconds (when the progress meter starts moving again) examine the error console for any FEBE related error messages (type febe in the "Search:" box and make sure only the "Errors" tab is selected ... not "All", "Warnings", or "Messages"). Copy/paste them here.

I'm wondering if it is a locale problem.

Type about:config in the location bar. In the "Filter" box type general.useragent.locale. What is the value?

FEBE has a locale for fr, but not fr-FR (i.e., French).

To see if it is indeed a locale problem, temporarily change the value to en-US (double-click the value to change it).
