Re: Firefox bookmarks problem

In reply to a post by Pipexer:
What about FF's (apostrophe needed to stop it being censored) built in import/export bookmark feature?

Are you after something to keep them synched or are you just trying to move them over? I am not quite sure from your post.

I have never tried the import/export bookmark feature.

I don't know how it works.

No I'm not trying to sync the bookmarks, just copy from the HDD installation to the SSD installation.

I'm using version 11.0 and I think I used to be able to see an import/export option but it's no longer there !

There is a 'Set up sync' option there though but I need to create an account.

Do you know if that would work ?

It should be there in firefox bookmark manager, it's a button at the top.

Failing this, just go into the firefox profile directory and copy the bookmark file across...

Set up sync would probably work, never used it tho smile

Thanks found it now.

I'm sure the import/export option used to be in the Bookmarks menu, never mind !?

That worked and was much easier than faffing about with MozBackup !

I think I'll ditch it and use the import/export option in future.

I am new to Windows 7 and now have the task of setting up Windows Mail which I believe involves downloading it as it isn't included as part of the O/S which is very strange.

Thanks to everyone for their help smile
