I am running Firefox 3.6.18 on Mac OS 10.4.11. My precious bookmarks have disappeared. I find that the j.son documents in the bookmark back up file are blank. I have tried to access the places.sqlite files in profiles but they appear as jumbled code (some bookmarks from Safari are however there).Does anyone have any ideas how I can retrieve my bookmarks? I'm not technical so layman's terms would be appreciated.

Hello Shona37a, if you have the places.sqlite file probably you are ok. the places.sqlite file can be edit with SQLite Manager or a specialized editor BUT you can move it to a new profile, see informatinos in the above link.

also think if you must go to TenFourFox for PowerPC's running Mac 10.4.11 & 10.5.8 , it is more secure from your 3.6.18 that is unsupported.


EDIT : Copying files between profile folders
