FireFix "Bootmarks" - Where are they located?

  mattyc_92 15:18 09 Jul 2005

Hi, I have been using FireFox for about 2 weeks now, and I am finding it to be very easy to use and loads sites alot faster than IE... But, I am just about to do my weekly system backups and scans, and realised that I don't know where the "bookmarks" are located (as I backup my "personal files", address book and favourites onto CD-RW and backup the system with acronis onto another partition/DVD-RWs)

Does anyone know where these are locatated?

As normal, thanks in advance.

I really must learn to spell.... lol

The title meant to read "FireFox "Bookmarks" - Where are they located?" and second to last line, locatated meant to be "located"

Hi - they should be stored in a folder called bookmarks.html.

If you can't find them, you can save them this way

Bookarks - manage bookmarks - file - export.

This will create a back up.

You should also spend time in the firefox home site learning about profiles.

Thanks for that ethelene....

Just tried it and it has created a file with no extension... Is this how it supposed to export, or is there, as I think there should be, a file format for the export to be saved as?

never mind.... Jumping to conlusions again... lol

The file "save as" dialog was saving in "all files" format (no file extension), but it has been converted to HTML format

Thanks again...
