Firefox bookmarks in windows 7 64bit

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well Windows 7 was nice enough to crash on me for the first time,

File hot swapping out a DVD drive and swapping in a hard drive while formatting a separate hard drive under a bad idea...

Now I cant get to my desktop, no real big deal but I need to find my bookmarks from Firefox.

Ive got my boot disk hooked up thru usb , looked around a bit but its either not an .html or its hiding from me.

Could someone point me in the right direction?

Application Data > Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles > something weird with default in the name

That's where they are hiding.

There should be a folder called bookmarkbackups in your profile.

You will probably need to show hidden files to find this.

I'm trying to copy bookmarks from my old computer to my new one and so I put bookmarks.html in here, but it didn't do anything.

I see files "bookmarks-2012-03-13.json" in here and not bookmarks.html... maybe this is why?

Thanks for any help biggrin.gif.

try importing the file rather then copying the file into the directory . also you should set up a sync account on firefox that works even better and it works with all your pcs and phones
