Your Firefox bookmarks are usually stored here:

C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\iplgtux8.default\bookmarks

You can copy and then save this file on any other

partition. Actually, it's a good idea to keep regular

backups of your bookmarks.

thnx for the suggestions guys but i found a solutiuon it backed up my whole firefox and its OS independant

its called FEBE and i found it from the link Sah posted


#11

yes FEBE is great using it for a long tyme!

works great with ff3!


#12

i additionally use foxmarks bookmark synchronizer to keep my bookmarks backup online!

febe tip:

to restore full profile:

close firefox completely

goto run and type

firefox.exe -profilemanager

create a new profile and open firefox with it

now install febe and goto febe and click restore profile

now restore the profile to default profile

now again go to run and type

firefox.exe -profilemanager

and now open firefox with default profile and delete other profile

Firefox Portable has its own set of problems if u really use it in a “portable” environment. (Some problems with common plugins like flash/java etc)
