I've been searching all evening and trying various options, but don't think I have this figured out, and wonder if anyone could help. I have an AM appt. to bring my computer in for an upgrade and would like to have my bookmarks archived first. (Mac OS10.4 / Firefox 3.6.25)
I found this info in another thread, and was able to follow it almost all the way through, save for the last part:
"Start at the USERS FOLDER (the one with your name on it) then LIBRARY then APPLICATION SUPPORT then FIREFOX then PROFILES then the folder .DEFAULT you should see files labelled BOOKMARKS and a folder labelled BOOKMARKBACKUPS you will see .html and .json files within this. Select an .html file and an appropriate date, open it in Firefox to check. Now go back to Firefox and click through bookmarks-organise bookmarks-restore-choose file and search for and select the file you just found."
When I click on the BOOKMARKBACKUPS folder, there are only .json files inside - no html. There was one bookmark.html file on the same level as the BOOKMARKBACKUPS folder, and when I opened it, it looked like an info page.
I did highlight, in turn, each of the .json files and under FILE, chose ARCHIVE and moved them to my external harddrive, but I'm not sure if I truly backed up the bookmarks. Appreciate any help.
