Is There a Terminal Switch to Export/Import JSON FILE?

Posted

I need to get and put files from Firefox in an external program, so I need to be able to export/import JSON files programmatically (probably the command line). Is there a switch I can use, or some other way to do this?

You can't do that via the command line.

There is a daily JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder in the Firefox Profile Folder

Maybe you can create a XPCOM component to do what you want. http://developer.mozilla.org/en/XPCOM http://kb.mozillazine.org/Category:XPCOM_example_code
