Perhaps not glorious or fancy,  but a serious challenge to implement 
properly.  Bug 22689 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22689>Import/Export 
Profile (Backup/Restore)

Users are becoming less file system savy,  Moving a profile is a major 
thing for them and we are now seeing such brilliance and moving the mail 
folder and replacing it.  then asking what went wrong.

This appears to be a defined issue with a fixed scope and significant 
existing work already having been completed in related bugs.  See 
http://hg.mozilla.org/automation/profilemanager/ for a stand alone 
profile manager with profile backup and restore.
