I am missing some bookmarks. I must have accidentally deleted them some time ago. I have an old profile saved from 6-7 months ago that would have the missing bookmarks. How can I open one of the backup bookmarks files from the old profile or convert it to html?
I know how to export to html but that appears to not give me the option of selecting a specific file to convert. Conversion only converts existing bookmarks to html which will not help me, if I understand correctly what I have read. I know how to restore the bookmarks but my understanding is that they are then added to existing bookmarks. I don't want to do that because probably 95% of my current bookmarks are in the older much larger version I have saved in the old profile plus much more that I wanted to get rid of.
I was thinking of exporting to internet explorer, since I never use it and it has no bookmarks. I don't know how to select a specific bookmark file for export or if it is even possible to do that. If I can do that, however, I can search the bookmarks there for what I need and then add them back to FF.
Can you help we with this. Thank you for your assistance.
