Backup Your Firefox Profile With MozBackup

imageMozilla has just released version 3.6.10 of Firefox to fix a startup bug that affected a small number of users. You may want to consider updating to this latest version. But before you do, consider backing up your existing  Firefox profile.

No doubt, you’ve invested much time and energy in setting up your Firefox bookmarks, extensions, add-ons, and other personal settings that work just for you, and which provide you with an effective, and efficient, browsing experience.

Personally, I have literally hundreds of bookmarks (some going back 7 or 8 years), 20+ add-ons, and additional tweaks that make my version of Firefox unique to me.

I shudder to think what I would need to do to recapture this exact configuration if, for some reason, I lost all the years of work that went into massaging Firefox to meet my exact personal requirements.

Luckily, I don’t have to lose any sleep over this possibility, since I frequently back up all of this critical data with MozBackup, a free tiny utility that all Firefox users should consider adding to their toolbox.

In addition to backing up a Firefox profile, MozBackup will create profile backups for the following applications – Mozilla Thunderbird, Sunbird, Flock, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite, Spicebird, Songbird and Netscape.

Lets run through a backup session for Firefox.

Open the application (be sure Firefox is not running) and follow the prompts as indicated in the following screen captures.

MozBackup 1

MozBackup 2

MozBackup 3

Please note, as shown in the above graphic, I backup to my E: drive, and not to my system drive. You should take the same precaution, and backup to a non-system partition, or a USB drive.

Frankly, after backing up my profile to a non-system partition, I then backup the same profile to a USB key. I will not take the risk of losing years of work through happenstance.

MozBackup 4

MozBackup 5

The backup is now complete – all in a matter of a few minutes.

MozBackup 6

Recovery is just as simple. Just start the application (be sure Firefox is not running), and follow the bouncing ball. In just a few moments, your previously backed up critical data will be restored.

MozBackup 7

MozBackup is one of the most important tools in my utility toolbox, and I strongly recommend it to all Firefox users.

Free KeyScrambler – Encrypt Your Internet Input

KeyScrambler Personal – A Must Have Browser Plug-in

Keylogger pic

This article was prompted by a situation one of my Blogging buddies ran into recently. Apparently, a friend of his was having a problem with his Internet connection, and major problems with his email sign-ins.

This problem, as it turned out, was a typical case of a compromised password – not a particularly unusual event. To ensure your passwords are as safe as you can make them, consider adding KeyScrambler Personal to your Browser.

KeyScrambler Personal is a free plug-in for FireFox, Internet Explorer, and Flock web browsers which protects all input you type into the browser, by encrypting your keystrokes at the kernel driver level.

Cyber-crooks are relentless in their pursuit of your money and let’s face it – it’s all about the money. In the worst case scenario, your identity and your financial security can be severely compromised.

Despite the best efforts of AntiSpyware, AntiVirus, and other Internet security products, you still face substantial risks while surfing the Internet. One type of malware that can expose you to financial risk is the Keylogger.

A Keylogger is a form of spyware which, once installed on a computer, can record every keystroke that is made on that computer, and transmit those keystrokes back to a cyber-criminal. The function of a Keylogger is to steal passwords, bank account numbers, and other personal information.

KeyScrambler 2

When you type on your keyboard, the input travels along a path within the operating system before it arrives at your browser. Keyloggers plant themselves along this path and observe and record your keystrokes. The compromised information is then sent to the cyber criminal who will exploit your passwords, bank account numbers, and other personal information.

By encrypting your keystrokes at the keyboard driver level, deep within the operating system, a Keylogger can be beaten since it can only record the encrypted keys, which are indecipherable.

Unlike AntiVirus and AntiSpyware programs that depend on recognition to remove Keyloggers that they know about, KeyScrambler will protect you from both known and unknown Keyloggers.

I’ve been using this great little plug-in for over a year and I feel more secure logging in than I once did. Despite this, I change all of my passwords frequently, since doing so, is just common sense.

Quick facts:

Protects user input in all parts of the browser against key-loggers.

Protects login credentials, credit card numbers, passwords, search terms and more

Works with IE, FireFox, and Flock: Java, Flash, PDF Forms

Email protection including Yahoo, Hotmail, and Gmail.

No learning curve.

Protects against Keyloggers even on security compromised computers

Requires no effort on your part after installation

In the top 5 FireFox Extensions for security and privacy

System Requirements: Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit).

Download at: Download.com

Setting your password correctly is vitally important to ensure your safety and privacy, on the Internet. Read how to do this correctly by visiting TechPauls site, and taking a look at “A Word About Words — Passwords, That Is”, which includes a link to a freeware application which makes password management a snap.

Blog Comments That Make No Sense

Some time ago, TechPaul, in his Blog Tech – for Everyone, wrote a great piece on why FireFox users’ would benefit by installing the NoScript add-on. If you’re not familiar with NoScript, the developer describes it this way:

“The NoScript Firefox extension provides extra protection for Firefox, Flock, Seamonkey and other mozilla-based browsers: this free, open source add-on allows JavaScript, Java and Flash and other plugins to be executed only by trusted web sites of your choice (e.g. your online bank), and provides the most powerful Anti-XSS protection available in a browser.”

So I was more than a little surprised, to see a recent reader comment referencing this article, in which the reader (a self described “web developer”), complained:

“Ok, great! Block Javascript, IFrames, Flash and the like. Why not go ahead and block web sites from loading on browsers from now on? At some point you have to get real about web browsing. What you are doing by spreading this so called information is causing panic, and making people scared to browse”.

My immediate response after reading this uninformed reader’s comment was – What planet are you living on? What internet are you surfing?  How could you be totally unaware of the following?

Trojan horse programs

Back door and remote administration programs

Denial of service

Being an intermediary for another attack

Unprotected Window shares

Mobile code (Java, JavaScript, and ActiveX)

Cross-site scripting

Email spoofing

Email-borne viruses

Hidden file extensions

Chat clients

Packet sniffing

Yes, uninformed reader, you must be right – TechPaul and the following informed users, and reviewers, must be wrong.

CNET News: “Giorgio Maone’s NoScript script-blocking plug-in is the one-and-only Firefox add-on I consider mandatory.” (March 9, 2009, Dennis O’Reilly, Get a new PC ready for everyday use)

Forbes: “The real key to defeating malware isn’t antivirus but approaches like Firefox’s NoScript plug-in, which blocks Web pages from running potentially malicious programs” (Dec 11, 2008, Andy Greenberg, Filter The Virus Filters).

PC World: Internet Explorer 7 Still Not Safe Enough because it doesn’t act like “NoScript […] an elegant solution to the problem of malicious scripting

New York Times: “[…] NoScript, a plug-in utility, can limit the ability of remote programs to run potentially damaging programs on your PC“, (Jan 7, 2007, John Markoff, Tips for Protecting the Home Computer).

The Washington Post security blog compares MSIE “advanced” security features (like so called “Zones”) to Firefox ones and recommends NoScript adoption as the safest and most usable approach.

The final part of this uninformed reader’s self serving comment was as follows:

“ If you have half decent anti everything, the real nasties will be blocked by them and the need for these add-ons won’t be there. This is not great news for web developers!!!”

One of the aims of Bloggers like TechPaul, Sir, is to offer information to readers which allows them to determine, based on real information, what steps they need to take in order to enhance security to a level which is appropriate for their needs.

A self described “web developer”, such as you, would be well advised to keep the needs of his clients, and end users, uppermost in his mind. Otherwise,it seems to me, you may not remain a web developer, ‘”self described”, or otherwise, for very long.

A Keylogger in action: The to_my_love.scr (to my love screensaver), is currently circulating on the Internet by way of a personal invitation email. Clicking “yes” when your asked whether you want to install this screensaver, installs a Worm/Keylogger on the machine.

This Keylogger is capable of stealing IM passwords, email passwords, bank account numbers, and confidential/financial information. Using IM, email, and other contact information from the now infected computer, the Worm/Keylogger goes on to infect other machines. That’s right, the computers of friends, family, and perhaps even co-workers.

Cooliris Previews – The Best Browser Add-on? – Picture-in-a-Picture Web Surfing

Get Picture-in-a-Picture browsing with a cool free browser add-on that that gives you the power to preview links and rich media content without clicking the link, or leaving your current page.

Using Cooliris is a great way to save time and reduce the drudgery involved in trying to determine which search results are worth investigating.  Cooliris lets you take a quick look at each link to see if it’s worthwhile investigating further.

I use this add-on frequently as I build a web page, or when writing a Blog posting, to ensure that all included links are working. Cooliris definitely increases my productivity; what a time saver!
