i would like to update to the newer version beta 4 , but i dont know how to keep my boolmarks from the 3.6 version ?
I see there is a newer version of firefox beta 4 , which i want to download , but i dont want to lose all my bookmarks from version 3.6 ?
Can some one give me some advice please , thank you
By default, Firefox 4 beta will use the same profile folder (location where bookmarks, passwords etc are stored) as Firefox 3.6
If you will only be using Firefox 4 beta this is not a problem, but if you plan to switch between the 2 versions you need to create a new profile for Firefox 4. Using the same profile with different versions can cause problems. Once you create a new profile you can copy certain data such as bookmarks and passwords between them. You can also use Firefox Sync to keep the profile synchronized. Finally, you will need to set up shortcuts to launch the correct profile for each version.
The following links show how to do this:
