backup and restore firefox bookmarks

in certain cases (before windows reinstall) you might want to backup your existing long list of (like mine) bookmarks in firefox, this is really simple to do & method as follows.(used firefox 6.0.2 for description)

  • open firefox browser
  • in menu, click bookmarks & click " show all bookmarks "
  • in the opened window (called " library ") you can see there is a drop down menu named " import and backup "
  • click in the menu and select appropriate action for you, if you want to backup > select location & type a name to identify backup file (normally it takes " bookmarks-current year-month-date " as a file name) and click save.
  • you can reverse the same process to restore bookmarks, click " import and backup " point to restore > click " choose file " > specify the saved file and click open, done.
