    In which directory and file does Firefox keep the list of bookmarks (favorites)?

    Thanks

  2. bookmarks.html, in your profile folder, the location of which varies by OS:

    Mozilla or Firefox (For Mozilla profiles look in the Profiles subfolder,
    for Firefox, look in Firefox\Profiles)

    WinXP, 2K:
    C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Mozilla

    Win ME, 98:
    C:\Windows\Application Data\Mozilla

    For Thunderbird, replace Mozilla with Thunderbird in above paths.

    The two files you need to backup are "bookmarks.bak" and "bookmarks.html"
    For 98se, they are located in c:\windows\application
    data\mozilla\firefox\profiles\xxx.default\

    For XP, they may be in a similar folder, but "bookmarks.bak" and
    "bookmarks.html" are the two files you want to backup.
