Firefox bookmarks

Postby kokomonjo on Tue Jul 14, 2009 8:21 pm

Hi all I just read this post and it didnt make sense to me

viewtopic.php?f=47&t=29003&p=168058&hilit=firefox+bookmarks#p168058

My problem is that I just upgraded the HDD in my laptop when I did this I installed Gloria x64 main edition. I had Felicia x86 installed on my old HDD. I made the old one an external drive but haven't erased it yet so that I could transfer all of my settings. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I need to go about getting all of my bookmarks off of the old installation and on to the new for firefore. Thanks for your help.

Bookmarks>Organize bookmarks>import and Backup (gets you an html format); backup restore uses the Firefox database (*.json file), not directly readable by the user..

I clean out the default Firefox bookmark settling, so that I have empty bookmarks (no extras) before I import that *.html file with my bookmarks,
--I also don't have history or recently used etc..

If you don't want to worry about all that, ever, use Xmarks.

Read this article at mozilla to get an overview over where the files are and what they do. This way you will be able to restore your files and know what files to backup next time.
