I think I found where Firefox hides my bookmarks. I made several changes this morning and I want to make a backup copy.

Posted

Are they at at C:\USERS\BOB\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles?

Your Firefox profile stores all of your personal data. Specifically, the places.sqlite file is responsible for saving your bookmarks and history. See Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles for more information about backing up your profile.

If you want to specifically backup your bookmarks, you also have a couple of other options. You can use the backup button to create a manual backup or you can also backup your bookmarks to an HTML file.

Hope this helps.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
