How can I copy the bookmarks/links I have in Firefox to a separate file?
On the menu bar, select Bookmarks, then “Show All Bookmarks”. On the separate screen that comes up select “Import And Backup”.
This action will open a "Library" window. Go to menu item "Import and Backup"... select: "Export Bookmarks to HTML" and save the file wherever you'd like.
Under ‘Bookmarks’ at top of your Browser, select ‘Show All Bookmarks’, then select ‘All Bookmarks’ in left column, then ‘right click’ on it, then ‘Copy’. Open notepad or word file then ‘Paste’!!!
Go to the bookmarks manager and export to .html file.
You should also have a bookmarkbackup file in mozilla/firefox that you can copy.
> Bookmarks> Show All Bookmarks
Export to HTML
You can also do a file search for
If you intend to import the bookmark file or edit it, you should probably to the backup from the Show All Bookmarks.
Additionally, check out mozbackup to backup your preferences, bookmarks, passwords, etc., in Firefox.
I prefer FireFox. It’s my default browser.
I like to download video. When viewing a YouTube or other video, a download box pops up and I click it to download the file.
Every new update to FireFox interrupts this capability for weeks.
Internet Explorer isn’t interrupted at all when it updates. (That I have observed)
It’s really annoying!
Thank you. Just what I needed.
