If I download a new version of Firefox and delete the old one, will my bookmarks be saved? Should I simply put the old version in the trash?

I just downloaded Firefox 31 and would like to get rid of the old version without losing my bookmarks.

Hello jlinder, YES your bookmarks will be saved.

1. Download full installer from

2. Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean install.

3. Install the version that you have downloaded.

Do not select to remove your personal data, your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks or other personal data.
