How can I transfer all bookmarks,history and passwords, from my XP machine to my new Mac?
This concerns the Firefox browser.
Hello ed, I tried to copy and paste the profiles years ago without luck. They seem to have changed so I will try again. Can you tell me if the "sync" feature will work as well?
It is best not to copy a full profile, but only the most essential files that you really need especially if you copy to a different OS.
So start with the bookmarks and history (places.sqlite) and the password files (signons.sqlite and key3.db).
You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:
- Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder (Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder)
