Backing up from an older version

Ok, thanks, finally human help! I just had to change my pc and make a fresh install of the operating system. I used Linux mint on the last pc, and have Linux MX 18.3 on the new one, currently in use. I took the precaution of copying my Firefox and Thunderbird folders from the old hard drive, as I have several years worth of bookmarks organised in to folders, irreplaceable. This was the way I had preserved that information in previous changes, and swapping the old folders with those in a new install worked fine. But now i find the new version has changed and the files differ and cannot therefore be swapped. I don't really want to get into blaming or how disappointed and annoyed I am, as this won't be the fault of the person helping, and that is appreciated. But back ups need to be backwards compatible or there is no point? So, not sure which version I had, but will have been a couple of years old with updates. In my 'etc' folder there was a Firefox folder, and in that I have a folder marked pref. In that folder there is a file named apturl.js and I have saved those folders. With my new install there is not even a folder for 'firefox' in my 'etc' folder. How do I proceed to restore my bookmarks? If I need to install and older Firefox version I will do so. Many thanks, Tony

Did you try to right-click in the File picker as that could (should) have a setting to include hidden file ?

Otherwise you can copy the content of the bookmarkbackups folder to a location you can access.

Linux distributions usually brand their version from the repositories and store the prefs file with the customization in the etc/firefox folder. This firefox folder isn't part of Firefox from the Mozilla server and there is no need to backup this folder. On Linux the Firefox profile folder in in a hidden location in your Home directory.

  • ~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile>

That's great, but there is a glitch. I have found and copied the file '.mozilla' in the old home folder, as you say, hidden. This is still a hidden file when copied over. Opening Firefox, I go to 'bookmarks' and 'show all bookmarks' and 'import and back up', then restore, and 'choose file'. Navigating to the folder, .mozilla is not shown, I guess as it is hidden. There appears to be no way to unhide it. Taking 'profiles.ini' out does not work either - that is still hidden.
