Ubuntu: Firefox bookmarks in the Ubuntu files system


I have accessed my crashed Ubuntu version via live USB trial. Where am I supposed to find my former Firefox bookmarks and history files in order to copy and transfer them into a new installation?


The easiest thing to do would be copying the Firefox profile folder over



The bookmarks are actually stored in bookmarks.html if you just want that.


If you have never used the firefox option Bookmarks->Show All Bookmarks-> Import and Backup -> Export Bookmarks to HTML, then you will never see a file, bookmarks.html. In such a case, you can probably copy over the history files stored in ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/bookmarkbackups/ where xxxxxxxx.default is a FF assigned directory. And then, don't forget to export the bookmarks to wherever you want them. It will be stored at /bookmarks.html
