Are bookmarks the equivalent to 'Favorites' in Internet Explorer?

Posted

Where are my saved websites saved? Also, am I able to "share" the file over my LAN? I have a desktop PC and a laptop connected to my network. What I would like to do is make it so whether I save (or bookmark?) a site on the laptop or desktop it is available on both. Does this make sense? If I need to do a better job explaining just let me know. Currently, I am successfully sharing the IE 'Favorites' folder so the links are always in sync and the same links are available on both of my machines.

hello soundprodj, yes what's called favorites in IE are bookmarks in firefox - however other than IE, firefox doesn't store them as individual files in the filesystem but in an internal database. you can use firefox sync to share your firefox bookmarks/history etc. between different devices:
