Lost motherboard on old computer - got a new one and the techs transfered the old hard drive onto the new one -- I want to find the bookmark file, so I can move it to Firefox on the new computer. I can run Firefox from the old hard drive files that were saved, but it does not find the old bookmarks -- I would have thought they would have been in a file, somewhere in the folder. Thanks for any help anyone can offer. ---- Last, I did not know that you could save (backup) bookmarks until I started this search. Dummy me, but willing to learn.
