Can I export cookies and history to new computer?

Posted

I am getting a new laptop and I would like to export my browsing history and all cookies. I saw the info about exporting bookmarks, but that is not what I am looking for.

Thanks! Karen

You can copy the places.sqlite file to the new profile to get the bookmarks and the history and cookies.sqlite for the cookies.
There are also JSON backups (bookmarks-####-##-##_xx.json) in the bookmarkbackups folder that can be used to restore the bookmarks.
You may also want to copy the permissions.sqlite file for the allow/block cookie exceptions and other exceptions.

You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
