I want to backup just my Bookmarks TOOLBAR not my bookmarks

I need to be sure I do not lose the items and groupings on my Bookmarks TOOLBAR

- NOT my bookmarks 

I know how to back up my bookmarks. HOW do I back up my Bookmarks TOOLBAR so I can recover just that - the Toolbar?

 I don't see any way or any individual file that contains this organized data so I can use it

to restore or migrate the toolbar

 Not the whole Profile. I have FEBE - but that doesn't seem to do what I am looking for.

Bryllars, I'd been wondering the same thing, then discovered that it's not possible to export/import the Bookmarks Toolbar -- which is disappointing, and a bit counter-intuitive -- since my most-used bookmarks get saved to my toolbar!

So what I did was to create a "Copy of Bookmarks Toolbar" subfolder in my Bookmarks folder and then copied my toolbar bookmarks to that subfolder. That way, if I ever need to export/import my bookmarks, I've got the toolbar bookmarks saved. I haven't had to do that yet, but when/if it ever happens, I should just have to save them back to the toolbar again.

Sorry, the Bookmark Toolbar is part of the bookmarks / history storage file - places.sqlite. As such there isn't a separate file which can be backed up separately.

Thanks a lot. How logical.

And I will do it.
