## To point Firefox to a different folder for bookmarks.html do I use double \\ in the User.js string?

That's what I conclude from the mozillaZine write up "User.js file." If so, the string is:

user_pref("browser.bookmarks.file", "C:\\Users\\Owner\\Dropbox\\Firefox\\bookmarks.html");

Is the double \\ path separator correct?

When I look at other files in about:config where the pref value is a folder path all that shows is a single \ not a double \\.

And yes, I have backed up prefs.js and bookmarks.html.

Thanks very much in advance for your time and attention to my question.

That is the convention used for the the user.js file.

You also need to turn the backup of bookmarks to the bookmarks.html file.

```// backup to bookmarks.html file upon closing Firefox:
user_pref("browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML", true);
```
