My macbook crashed but I was able to recover the harddrive. Is it possible to recover my firefox bookmarks from the harddrive? I cannot access firefox itself as an app, only the files that were previously on the harddrive. Thank you.

Note that the device you used to post your question use an outdated Firefox version and Shockwave Flash plugin version (current is 32.0.0.303 (32.0 r0)).

Check Flash:


You would either need the places.sqlite file (bookmarks and history) or the compressed JSON (.jsonlz4) backups in the bookmarkbackups folder.

Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder, so make sure to look in the correct location. Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>/

In Mac OS X v10.7 and later, the "~/Library" folder in the Home directory is a hidden folder.
