Save your bookmarks and others


If you want to save your Firefox bookmarks and folders etc there is a great program add-on which I use called 'Bookmark Backup' from Pike.

Bookmark Backup is a simple extension that helps to keep your bookmarks (and optionally other Firefox settings) safe. Each time Firefox is closed, a copy of your bookmarks file will be made to a backup location. If Firefox's bookmarks become corrupted or lost, find the most recent uncorrupted backup and copy it into your profile folder.

Link: Bookmark backup download

I've made a new folder in my 'external' hard drive and my bookmarks and files automatically go in there when I close my firefox browser. It actually saves information in days for easy retrieval

This saves all your stuff to your profile too. There is a good guide on the mozilla site but is hard to find so I've placed the link below

Link: How to find your profile

If you do want to do it this way, make sure you have the option enabled so you can view hidden folders.

1. Control Panel
2. Folder Options
3. Click the 'View' tab
4. Click on 'Show hidden files and folders'
5. Click 'Apply'
6. Click 'OK'

Windows Vista

1. Click the Windows Start button, and type %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ in the Start Search box near the bottom of the Start menu, without pressing Enter. A list of profiles will appear in the top left of the Start menu.

2. Click on any of the profiles (e.g. xxxxxxxx.default) to open it with Windows Explorer.


WINDOWS XP
Start / Run
type in: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

Windows Explorer opens a folder containing your profiles.

Double-click the profile folder you wish to open (e.g. the xxxxxxxx.default folder).
