Restoring bookmarks from Windows Easy Transfer

Posted
I need to restore my bookmarks from Windows Easy Tranfer.I saw the same question asked and answered but the answer didn't explain how to transfer the bookmarks manually. I did find a Firefox file and tried to import from the organize libraries drop down. It gave me the message "importing will replace current bookmarks are you sure...?" I told it to proceed but I don't see my bookmarks. What do I need to do to solve this?

User Agent

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; GTB6; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

It depends if you included the Mozilla directory in your transfer. See http://www.kombitz.com/2009/04/18/how-to-use-windows-easy-transfer-to-transfer-firefox-and-thunderbird-profiles-on-windows-7/

To avoid confusion, I'll just point you the knowledge base article on how to back up and restore your Firefox info. :-) See Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles
