Importing bookmarks from a different moxilla account

more options

Is it possible to import bookmarks for a different Mozilla account. Apparently I have 2 different Mozilla accounts. I had been using (I'll call it account #1) for quite a while, and recently subscribed to Mozilla VPN service. When I subscribed i gave it login info for "Account #2". How can I keep the logon info for the VPN, and get my bookmarks imported from the old (routinely used account #1) ? Or, can I change the VPN service to the old account (account #1)? I know how to add another device to the VPN account, but the "accounts" are on the same "device".

Thanks...

Hi, your bookmarks are stored locally by Firefox. And (optionally) they can be shared with other installations of Firefox using Sync. Local files are the primary storage.

Judging from the tone of your message, you haven't lost any data, but you would prefer to get your Firefox and VPN aligned to a single login rather than dealing with two logins.

In theory, you could simply sign Firefox out of your old account -- do not click the button to flush your data!! -- and sign into your new account. Firefox Sync then should start populating your new account with your existing local data.

I can understand being nervous about that; you don't want to end up with no bookmarks. Here are a couple things to know:

(1) Firefox makes automatic bookmark backups when you add or change your bookmarks. To create a manual backup, see the steps in the following articles:

(2) You can back up your entire profile folder for recovery in case there are serious problems. The following article has the steps:

Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles

Does that make sense?

Hilfreich?
