Extracting bookmarks from Android mozilla profile backup

Hi,

I had Firefox and Firefox Beta installed on my Android phone. This prevented me syncing bookmarks with my desktop Firefox.

I decided to remove all Android versions and reinstall.

First I backed up the Beta profile since this contained the bookmarks I want.


I cannot find the bookmarks within this profile. AFAIK there is no places.sqlite. Has the filename changed? My version was beta Firefox 19

Thanks for the info KBrosnan.

The browser.db file was not easy to find, but after installing the ES File Explorer v. 3 app I was finally able to find it in:

"/ Device / data / data / org.mozilla.firefox / files / mozilla / xxxxxxxx.default" profile folder.
