Want to import bookmarks but can't get the Windows Vista version of Firefox to run on Windows 10 to create an html file.

My old computer broke down and I am using a USB Hard Driver Adapter to connect my old HDD to my new computer. I would like to import my bookmarks from my old Firefox but the Firefox application on my old HDD wont run on Windows 10. The older version of Firefox ran on Windows Vista. The version of Firefox on my new computer's drive is up-to-date and runs on Windows 10.

Are you able to access the Firefox profile folder on that older drive?

You likely need to enable hidden files.

Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data in "AppData\Roaming".

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

"AppData" is a hidden folder.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

My old computer is completely broken, it wont even start in safe mode. And my hard drive is an old HDD so I can't install it in my new computer. I'm using a USB Hard Driver Adapter to connect the old HDD to my new computer to gain access to it. When I try to open the version of Firefox on my old HDD it wont open because it is not compatible with Windows 10 so I can't do the usual export/import HTML file for my Bookmarks. What I need is a work around for this.

Thank you! I copied the "places.sqlite" file from my old profile into my new one and it did the trick.
