Hello all - I'm recovering from a nasty, nasty infection on my PC
which required a brain transplant. Very annoying as I had
anti-virus, spy and adware on my system but it still managed to get
very ill. PC repair rep said he has been swamped the past week or so
with the same problem from many folks so at least I'm not alone :(
I'm slowly rebuilding my bookmarks - oh gosh it will take forever
since I had books, arts and crafts, photography, needlework,
gardening, cooking and baking, music, school and scout information,
shopping sites, travel, on and on....
My question is if anyone can tell me which specific file on my system
is the one where Mozilla saves the bookmarks for my profile? I'd
like to save these onto a separate drive since my system backup
didn't seem to. I will want to do this for the other 3 accounts on my
system as well so was hoping someone could point me in the right
thanks much! MelissaD
This is where my Firefox profile is stored on my computer:
C:\Documents and Settings\[my name]\Application
letters and numbers].default
Among the files there, you should see bookmarks.bak (apparently this is
generated automatically and periodically overwritten) as well as
bookmarks.html; I'm not sure if you can simply copy these and add them
to your new profile or not, but it might not hurt to try.
I'm thinking it might also be easy to find using Start/Search/All
files and folders/Mozilla/Firefox, but am not sure. Just suggesting
that because I usually do not let those things load to programme files
where they want, but rather where I want, usually on the other HD, not
the main one which has the OS on it.
Someone just sent me this quote and I couldn't resist posting it. It's just
soooooooo appropriate to this thread.

mine - except when the a-hole at Microsoft had me do something in the admin
unix screen that totally screwed up that machine's upgraded motherboard for
the OS. Honestly, my serious geek friends and I all pretty much recommend 1
strraightforward, fun, ref book to have on hand which helps you get the most
out of the OS, but while we may have some other references for writing code
- on the whole - it really is a pretty straightforward plug and play. Plus,
the Apple store will transfer all your files for you from your old machine
to the new one when you buy a system.
Ellice - who never answers these questions 'cause it's really easy usually
to find the files on her MAC.
