I used this tablet for many years and got lots of bookmarks on my browser, but recently its antenna stopped working. I did some research and found out you can export the bookmarks from firefox even if you cant connect to the internet to use the sync functionality. I rooted the phone, copied the browser.db file from firefox and exported the bookmarks table with SQLite Browser. I read on some verry old (6-8 Years ago) threads on this forum that they imported the bookmarks.csv they got from the db in excel, then modified it in some sense and then exported it to a html file to import that in firefox. I did everything to where i have the whole table in excel, only need to know what i need to modify in it.
