Check out this cool program. Will backup all browser profiles and bookmarks/data for virtually all browers
and also optimize (firefox and variants) and best of all it's free! (With an installer or portable version.)

I seem to remember this from long ago and just stumbled back upon it today and works really well! Does optimize firefox for faster first time startup. I like that it also works with Chromium Edge for the backup feature. (AND thunderbird even)

Smart screen also blocked it???
Installer version also fine over here with Kaspersky. I tested them both on my wife's pc with has Norton and it did block it. Said it's "too new" and "less than 50 community members have it" as the basis. (Say what?) I can understand the caution but that alone is not a basis to flag something as malicious! (Which it isn't) Norton false positive. Just sent to virus total for the installer. And for the portable none were found.

*Update* I also emailed the software author on his site to alert him of the false positives from SecureAge and Norton.

Hi everybody,
I found this forum by following the link that refers to my site.
I thank Tutman for sharing my software and for alerting me of false positives on VirusTotal, actually Norton fixed the false positive, but McAfee-GW-Edition now mark it as a PUA (CSDMIMonetize) but my software doesn't bundle any monetizing method.
I wrote to McAfee and they are checking the file.
The other antivirus company (SecureAge) didn't respond to my email.

About the Smart Screen, buying a certificate for a software costs enough, and Hekasoft's software does not bring me revenue (if we exclude donation ones) so I can't afford to renew the software certificate since I already pay to keep the site online.
This is the only reason they don't have the certificate.
Thanks again for sharing my software, and if you have any questions I will be happy to answer.
Best regards,
Claudio

Welcome to MT! I like to make daily browser profile backups, so I look forward to trying your software.

Windows Defender and Jotti online malware scan say the file is safe.

...but you can use Hekasoft Backup & Restore to export all the extensions to the desktop and save them in a folder to import in Google Chrome (or derived browsers)

The question is are the settings (and filters like in uBO, scripts etc) in the extensions are all exported as well or just only the extensions alone?

It copies the whole profile folder. So it should contain everything.

And, EVERYTHING, means bookmarks, passwords, settings etc?

Can't say anything about Brave or any other Chromium babies since I haven't tried yet but everything for Firefox. The backup is a 7z file basically. Open it in any archive app like 7zip/Winrar/Bandizip to check which folders and files it has backed up.
