How to save your Firefox bookmarks on your computer?

I’m having some problems with Firefox, so I want to uninstall it and then reinstall it. But I want to save all my bookmarks, so can I save my bookmarks to my computer, and then import them back to Firefox once I reinstall it? Thanks for the help.

  1. On the left side of the address bar the logo of the address is shown. If you click and drag the logo to your desktop it will create a file. When you click the file it will open your default browser to the address so basically it’s a bookmark.

  2. Don’t worry about saving them. Unless you delete Firefox’s data directory, they’ll be there when you reinstall.

    If you still want to save them, they’re at:

    In Windows XP:

    c:Documents and Settingsyour usernameApplication DataMozillaFirefoxProfilesyour profile number.defaultbookmarks.html

    In Windows Vista:

    c:Usersyour usernameApplication DataMozillaFirefoxProfilesyour profile number.defaultbookmarks.html

    Come to think of it, reinstalling Firefox from the ground up might give you a different profile number, so knowing where the bookmarks file is is a good idea.

    Hope that helps.
