Still have the same problem.... I Closed FF tried everything mentioned and then restarted FF and I still do not have my original bookmarks I want to move. The new Profiles file had the same name as the old one. I trashed the new (blank one) and replaced it with the old (good one) to make sure it was changed.

I am using FF3.6.3 and Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on the new Mac, Tiger X, on the old Mac

I have two back-ups of my hard drive and none of the files mentioned work. I have a feeling I some how messed up my .json back up and my HTML back-up or got them confused. I've tried all sorts of combinations and none seem to work. My bookmarks were so important to me, it's how I organize my life and business.

Thanks for the help, everything seemed clear to me, just didn't work. D.

I'm sorry that it's not working.

For future reference, you may want to back up the profile folder as a whole (this way you keep every single thing from your Firefox). You may also want to try only synchronization of Firefox customizations (including passwords, bookmarks and all). Firefox Sync is an extension you can use, it's perfectly safe and very good. Firefox 4 will include option online synchronization by default. Hopefully it will prevent this kind of problems.

I'm sorry, once again. I hope you get it working, somehow.
