User-defined backups issue

My Firefox extensions that have been released for Pale Moon

User-defined backups issue

Postby bex1210 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 10:20 pm

I have FEBE 10.2, running on Pale Moon 27.8.1 (32 bit), on a Windows 7 (64 bit) SP1 operating system.

You previously showed me how to use the user-defined backup screen to load Stylish's User Styles.

I select New, then check File, then add the Label, Description, and Source.

If I then check 'Include in backup, Submit, and Restore Extensions, it all works as it should.

But the next time I go back to User-defined backups, wanting to run the very same File, everything is blank, and I have to start again. I cannot find any way to have this Label, Description, and Source information saved so I can use it again.

Clicking on OK at the bottom of the page, which saves all of the other settings I have made in FEBE Options, does not work on this user-defined backups page.

How do I get my user-defined backup information saved? I did a forum search, and could not find this problem addressed.

After clicking the "Submit" button, you need to click "Post entries and exit".

To see if the entry has been saved, re-open FEBE Options > What to backup > User-defined backups and click the "Edit" button. Click the down-arrow on the "Select" button and see if the entry label is there.

If it is still not saving, try clicking the "Reset" button and re-enter the entry. There should always be at least one entry named "FEBE data" that is automatically added if any other entries are added.

Note: Also make sure that FEBE Options > What to backup > Backup type > Additional items > User-defined backups is checked.

For complete instructions, click the little blue 'i' icon next to "User-defined backups" (near the top of that window).
