Restoring Bookmarks from firefox directory on another computer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
System crashed. Could not get the system stable to windows. Pulled out the ssd and connected it as an external drive to another computer through a kingston ssd to usb adapter. I am now looking at my firefox directory wondering how can I restore the bookmarks from there. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

Just close down your working copy of Firefox and search the old drive for the following files. Just make sure to note the directories or folders they reside in on the old drive. Replicate that on the new drive and you're all set.

Hope this helps. Make sure you are only searching the old drive......
