How do I import a copy of the places.squilite file from one FF installation to another FF installation?

Posted

I lost my bookmarks in FF 3.6.3 on one computer. I was able to copy the places.squalite file and place it in a desktop folder of a new computer also using FF 3.6.3. I'm not sure how to import this file into the new FF. Can I go into the program files, rename the places.squalite file there as "old..."and substitute the copy I placed in the desktop folder? Or is there another way to salvage the info?
