    I am moving machine. I want to *export* my
    FF bookmarks to the new machine, new FF installation. I see no option
    for doing this. My existing FF only gives me *import* options.

    The new FF asks if I want to import, but only from Explorer.

    (There is some inferiority complex built into FF here ;-)

    Any suggestions how I may do this?

    The Bookmarks Manager window has Export on its File menu.

    There is NO need to export and import. Copy the file bookmarks.html
    from one installation to the other.

    And backup your profile on a regular basis.

    A good scapegoat is almost as good as a solution.

  6. Hi Ed,

    I'm brand new to Mozilla. I'm still using OE but I'm now using FF.
    So to back up profiles (4 users on the computer), I just need to backup the
    4 users profiles at C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application

    That's easy! And then those files could be imported into a new or clean
    install of FF if needed??

    Thanks for helping a newbie.

    Yes. And backup the profiles on a regular basis!
    Yes. Here are a couple links that discuss copying/moving profiles which
    also apply to what you've asked. Profiles.html
    Happy to help.
