hello, I'm trying to transfer firefox 8 bookmarks using the windows 7 appdata profile for firefox. Everything I read says there should be a places.sqlite in the mozilla profile directory, but the only folders I see are "cache", "offlinecache", "startupcache" and the "urlclassifier3.sqlite" file. I have bookmarks in my firefox application, so where is that info stored?

If you see "cache","offlinecache" etc. then you are looking at the wrong directories. You are looking under AppData\local , but the bookmarks are under AppData\Roaming. For me on Win Vista it is:
AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default

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

Well, I didn't see that folder when I backed up the drive, now its been erased. There go all my bookmarks because firefox can't save the book marks in a convenient xml or html file. What a piece of crap, i'm switching back to IE. Least IE doesn't lose all my bookmarks.
