import bookmarks from mozilla to new computer

Posted

Already transferred files & folders from old laptop to new one, but Firefox & associated bookmarks did not make the transfer. I've downloaded Firefox to the new laptop, but can't find any useful info on how to import the bookmarks.

I am sooo lost - info shown above might as well be Greek to me! I have tried to follow all the steps to get my info from old computer to new one. Where can I get more detail re the "profile folder". I created one as it stated, but I'm not able to find it again to do the pasting of old info into (ie where it states "open the new Firefos profile folder"). Been at this for hours! Please help...(note, I backed-up old info to flashdrive per one set of instructions). Also, so much backed-up, how do I know what I really need? Thanks

hottoddys, you asked, Where can I get more detail re the "profile folder. Maybe these other articles will help?

If you (or anyone else) needs more help you should start a new thread in the Support forum. You can use this link as a starting point: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new


Since the thread owner has marked the issue as "solved" I'm locking this thread.
