I have installed firefox 2.0.0.14 on windows xp professional, and the
bookmarks work ok. However, I don't find bookmarks.html anywhere under
the documents and settings folders or subfolders. I have windows
explorer set to show hidden files. Where can firefox be getting it's
bookmarks from? I searched the drive for bookmarks, and the only one I
find is in Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile, and it's
not using that one because when I delete it, the bookmarks still work
in firefox. I want to copy my bookmark.html file from another
computer, but where would I put it?

OK, I found the problem. I failed to check off "search hidden files
and folders" when searching for bookmarks.html

if you can't find it then do this: copy the set of bookmarks
from the other computer and place it anywhere you want in
the new computer. Then from FF, click on Bookmarks,
Organize Bookmarks, then File, Import and import from the
file. Now locate the bookmark file you just placed on the
hard drive, and import that file.

To copy the set of bookmarks, then just reverse everything
by using Export.
