    For Firefox just backup (or copy) the highlighted items. Restore to the same location when needed.

    I know where chrome and flock profiles are saved so I should be okay. But will profiles still work if transferred from one hard drive to another as i need to know if i will be starting from scratch. I haven't backed them up they have just been transferred from one hard drive to another okay

    All I can say is that I zipped my FF profile for another member to test using their own computer and it worked so transferring profile to another drive shouldn't be a problem.

    I see that it does backup Flock. I've used MozBackup in the past but developer states:

    Note   Note

    MozBackup is not being developed anymore. There are known issues and there is no time on my side to fix all issues and develop new features. Use MozBackup only on your risk

    Can you confirm that it still works with FF Quantum?

    I have used it on 57, 58 and 59. It works. What is good that you can restore only the Bookmarks and such. I save it to a flash drive.
