What's the file that stores the saved tab urls?


My laptop's screen broke. There were a lot of important urls I was saving through Firefox. My laptop runs on Windows 7. I'm not sure how current Firefox is, but it was updated within the last year. What is the file path to the file that lists the urls?

Take your profile backup and restore to your new laptop

Mozilla Firefox stores all your personal settings, such as bookmarks, passwords and extensions, in a profile folder on your computer
