Default If I want to reinstall Firefox, how do I save my bookmarks?

Thanks!

When you uninstall you will be asked if you want to save your settings. Say yes, and when you reinstall they will still be there.

At least that's what happened when I reinstalled FF a few weeks ago.

I often back up all of my book marks as I have a few hundred
of them. All I do is drag them into a folder and export them to
an external drive. So, not only do you have them on your own
computer, but you also have them on a backup drive. Prepare
yourself for the unexpected.

You can normally import from IE if that's what you are using now. However you might want to install xmarks onto your present browser. It's a free plugin and works cross browsers.

Bookmarks>show all bookmarks>import and backup>export html - import to new ff

IMO always do a clean install of FF...never over an old one.

Personally, I use MozBackup. It's very easy to use and allows you to back up your Fox and your Thunderbird separately. This includes saving bookmarks.

I've had no problems with it and it's free:

MozBackup - A utility for creating backups of Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Suite and Netscape profiles

I hope that this helps.

Regards,
Jeff.
