[Solved w/ 8.7debug]FEBE NOT skipping the cache (FF 38.0.1)

Postby sdrubble » Fri May 15, 2015 8:54 am

Hi,

I just did a major FF upgrade (or 'sort of', read below) - from FF 31 (w/ FEBE 8.3) to FF 38 (w/ FEBE 8.6).

An issue which I didn't previously have just appeared: when doing a full profile backup, FEBE includes the cache folder (\cache2) and its contents in the .FBU file.

I performed a reset of all FEBE's settings as recommended for this type of upgrade, to no avail.

Under "How to backup" in FEBE's preferences window, the option "Ignore caching and phishing DB" is grayed out, but the corresponding checkbox appears already checked.

I have a very non-standard FF setup which may or may not be relevant to the issue, but here are its main points just in case:

- multiple FF installs which co-exist for different versions, each on [ProgramFiles(x86)]\Firefox_nn
- multiple copies of firefox.exe with different names, within each of the FF install folders
- multiple FF profile folders for any one of a given FF version
- one set of 2 or 3 FF profile folders for each of the installed FF versions

all of the above has the purpose of allowing me to run 2 or more FF versions at the same time, or 2 different profiles of the same FF version, randomly, simultaneously and independently ... why ? I cooked up this setup after getting burned multiple times by my Internet Banking ill-documented and badly-supported collection of extensions & plugins stopping working after every FF upgrade.

An additional detail, which again may or may not be relevant to the issue, is the fact that I run each of these profiles within a virtual drive letter (generated with 'subst' Windows command). I do this since FF v02 and honestly I don't remember exactly 'why', but it's probably got something to do with enabling profile portability among different computers at some pre-historic FF version.

All of this black magic is accomplished with 2 or 3 primitive .BAT files which get cloned and adapted along with each of FF 'pseudo-upgrade', so to speak.

I have also cooked up - and tested - a workaround for the unwanted cache inclusion: I've opened the resulting .FBU file with 7-zip and simply DELETED the \cache2 folder. I then proceeded to successfully clone my most recent FF 38.0.1 profile, by extracting this lipoaspirated backup into a brand-new empty profile folder, and it seemed to be working correctly.

While I can live with my current workaround - albeit the annoyance of having to WAIT while my 600Mb cache is backed up - I'd be happy to provide any additional input towards a possible solution to this issue.

Cheers

Re: FEBE 8.6 is NOT skipping the cache (FF 38.0.1 on Win 7)

It seems FEBE was checking for the existence of "Cache" and "cache2" correctly, but failing to ignore "cache2" during the full profile backup. Please try the attached version and let me know.
