How do I export bookmarks in WIndows 2000 + FF 12 to a new computer running Windows 8 + IE? The instructions I found don't work.

The instructions I found talk about Windows XP and selecting a history tab and then selecting export. Can't find this on my browser.

Hi,

You can copy/overwrite places.sqlite in the Windows 2000 Firefox profile folder into the Windows 8 Firefox profile folder. This would bring in both the bookmarks and history.

Bookmarks backup/restore

HTML export/import

Firefox Profile Folder

To open the profile folder via Firefox: Help (Alt + H) > Troubleshooting Information > Show Folder.
