Export Firefox Profiles and Import them on any OS in one click

A general problem after formatting and have a fresh OS installation is to configure and get all previous settings on Mozilla Firefox browser. Yes, it will take couple of hours to get back essential addons and setting their preferences. So, having a backup of not just bookmarks but also settings, preferences, themes, everything.

Yes, there are various methods but the utility I am sharing today is just a click away. PortProfile is a small utility which can backup or export complete Firefox browser profile in one click and restore or import in same way. In this way, you never lose anything important or less important from old installation. Not just on fresh OS installation but also it can help in using the same profile on multiple systems irrespective to the Operating system. It will work on Mac, Windows and Linux seamlessly.

PortProfile is a Java application which exports browser profile in PPZ file and then it can be stored in external storage disk like pendrive or simply upload on remote server. The same file can be used to restore all settings of the Exported Firefox Profile in one click.
