Permissions restore doesn't work (FEBE 8.3.1 - Pale Moon)

After restoring a backed up permissions.json file (no error messages), there are no changes in about:permissions, nothing is restored even after a browser restart.

At one time, Fx (and Pale Moon) stored the permissions in the file permissions.json. Apparently, this was changed to storing permissions in two files: content-prefs.sqlite and permissions.sqlite. The current FEBE for Fx does backup those files, but the Pale Moon version (FEBE 8.3.1) was not updated to do this.

This fall, I will be updating FEBE for Pale Moon and will fix it. In the meantime, you can setup a user-defined backup for those two files.
