Can I restore bookmarks from MozyHome backup?

Posted

My Windows 7 OS got corrupted and had to be reinstalled so I've had to "rebuild" my laptop. I don't recall ever backing up my many Firefox bookmarks using a Firefox tool. My online backup is Mozy and I've successfully restored data files. I see a folder among the Mozy backup files with this path: F:\mozyLocalBackup\betsyb-laptop\C\Users\betsyb\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\gy6v6xhf.default-1408376452741. It contains files with names like logins.json and places.sqlite. Can I use any of this to restore bookmarks and other things that were stored in my Firefox profile? If not, any other suggestions? Thanks!

I looks like it has your '''gy6v6xhf.default-1408376452741''' profile. Copy it to a separate folder on your computer. If you have not done so, create a new user profile.
