Recover bookmarks from profile after hard drive crash

Posted

I suffered a hard drive crash and had it replaced. I was able to save the most important of my data from my old hard drive, but I did not think to try to save my Firefox bookmarks. I did not have a Sync account before the crash happened.

Is there any way at all to recover the bookmarks from before the crash?

Note: I am using a 2009 iMac with a brand-new hard drive and running OS X Mavericks.

Firefox always takes a backup of bookmarks.

What data did you backup from the old drive?

In Mac OS X v10.7 and later, the ~/Library folder is a hidden folder.
