How To Back up Firefox Bookmarks & IE Favorites
« on: August 24, 2010, 12:14:06 PM »
So you're going to buy a new PC, and you want to keep your Firefox bookmarks.  Here's how to do that:

Firefox Bookmarks

Rather than write out the instructions, I thought a link would be more helpful.  As Firefox changes its procedures from time to time, the instructions in this link should change, too.


For IE, here's how you save your Favorites (from IE Help menu):

Click to open Internet Explorer.

Click the Add to Favorites button , and then click Import and Export.

In the Import/Export Wizard, click Next.

Select Export Favorites, and then click Next.

Select the favorites folder that you want to export. If you want all of your favorites, select the top level (Favorites) folder, otherwise, select the individual folder. Click Next.

By default, Internet Explorer creates a file called Bookmark.htm in your Documents folder. If you want to use a name other than Bookmark.htm or to store the exported favorites in a folder other than Documents, specify the new file and folder name.

Click Next. If you already have a file by the same name, Internet Explorer will ask you to replace it. Click Yes if you want replace the file or click No and type in a new file name.

Click Finish.


NB:  In her Tutorials, Kamali covers backing up both favorites and cookies in IE.
