FEBE will not complete backup

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

FEBE will not complete backup

Postby febeuser45 » Tue Aug 02, 2011 12:07 pm

Greetings -
I have been using FEBE for quite some time with no problems. I am unsure whether my current problem is related to Win 7 or Firefox 5.0 or something else!

When I open Firefox, FEBE pops up and asks to backup. I okay the operation and FEBE starts, but it just keeps going and going. I left it active once for about an hour just to see if it would finish. No luck. I just have to abort the operation.

If looks like this has been going on for about a month.

I deleted the FEBE add-on and reinstalled using version 7.0.1. Still no change.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

Try running "Clear FEBE preferences", "Verify extension directory" and "Check AddonManager functionality" in Tools > FEBE > FEBE Options > Advanced.

If you are still experiencing problems, 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). Copy/paste them here.
