Can I back up my android phone bookmarks as html file?

Posted

Is there a way to "back up" my bookmarks on my Android phone. I want to be able to read them, as you can with the desktop version, viewable as html file.

I *do not* want to synchronise them with my laptop.

Thanks.

As far as I know, it's not an easy process. As far as I know, there is not direct approach. If you think you are one of the advanced user, may follow these:

  • First you have to find browser.db,, using a powerful file explorer like Es File explorer or Z-archiver
  • The file path is / Device / data / data / org.mozilla.firefox / files / mozilla / xxxxxxxx.default
  • Then download the free SQLite Database Browser (http://sqlitebrowser.org/) for your laptop
  • Open browser.db with the soft and export "bookmarks" table to an Excel table
  • You have to a slight modification in Excel and create .HTML file
  • Then you may be get your desired result!

Thank you Sashoto Seeam. Thank you for your quick reply. I'm not a computer expert, but always want to learn. This seems a little overwhelming at first, but understand the principle. Beyond my normal experience, but a challenge to see what I can do now. Getting as far as an Excel document is really all I need. Thank you again.

You need to have root permission in your device. Without root permission you can't modify or even see system files on Android.

I have seen this, but I am a novice user, so this solution might not work for me.

I can see the path until the org.mozilla.firefox folder now, but not further.

Any other ideas?
