Firefox question/problem.......

Post by Bluefront » Mon Apr 30, 2007 6:58 am

I've been having posting problems with the latest Firefox version. If I uninstall the prog, and reinstall, will I loose bookmarks? Just how do you manually save or transfer bookmarks?

Foxmarks! The best extension EVER! :D

Especially if you have more than one PC.

Or you could start using something like del.icio.us too.

I use a program called mozbackup which backs up all the settings and bookmarks whenever you like. Also works for thunderbird and the mozilla suite, so I use it to archive emails regularly. Similarly it backs up the email account settings and such.

You can also copy the whole user profile while you're at it: it's the folder with a string of random letters, in linux it's in ~/.mozilla/firefox/, in windows it's probably somewhere in C:\Documents and settings\username\Application whatever\Mozilla or something.

My vote goes here as well. It's a simple utility for storing all this info to one file. Customize what exactly you want to save by checkmarking it in the list.
