When the "browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML" setting in about:config is changed to True, the current bookmarks are supposed to be saved to bookmarks.html in the active profile folder each time FF is closed. I, however, just upgraded to Windows 10, and even though this setting was changed, no such file is saved. I've seen no reports of this capability changing under Win10. Should I report this as a bug? dL

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi Dale_Latimer, The config entry "browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML" requires a restart to begin working. You should see a bookmarks.html file in your Profile folder on successive closings of Firefox.

You can set a different location to save the file, if you want:

Type (or paste) about:config in the address bar and press Enter Select Accept the Risk and Continue Enter browser.bookmarks.file in the search bar at the top of the page select String and click the Add button at the far right Enter the full path of the file, e.g., C:\Users\<yourname>\Documents\BookmarksBkup\Bookmarks.html Be sure to include the file extension - .html

Close the about:config tab.
