Bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks -> File -> export to file
then just import them via the same menu
lol too simple, no wonder.
The bookmarks are stored in the file "bookmarks.html" in your profile directory (which by default is C:\Documents and Settings\*username*\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles). So, alternatively you can just copy that file across. Whatever's easiest.
Also, if you want to save for a format you can just copy the whole profile folder . Then when you reinstall, create a shortcut to "firefox.exe -p" which will start the profile manager and you can just create a new profile that points to the profile folder you saved (or you can also edit profiles.ini, which is the recommended way of doing it). You will then have everything back. (See here)
I use MozBackup for Firefox and Thunderbird backups.

Annoying firefox problem
Ive been using firefox for the past month or so and have come across an annoying issue, take the OCAU front page for example, I want to click on the recent threads links on the left hand side of the page and have those links open up in a new tab in the existing window but they still spawn a new browser window instead, now I have been through the settings and told firefox to open links in a new tab but it still opens in a new window instead
Before I migrated to Opera Browser, I used to have this common problem using FF. I seem to remember uninstalling FF and deleting all it's related files and settings and then reinstalling.
Tools > Options > Tabs > Check the "Force links that open windows to open in" then select a new tab.
I dont have that screen.........there is no "tabs" option under tools

Is there an extention I can use to disable downloads in Firefox? I'm trying to stop a family member from downloading and installing trash on their computer.
Firefox bookmarks question..
Just wondering if there is a plugin for firefox that makes the bookmarks work like IE..
The only thing I want from IE is when you start typing in a web addy, say overclockers for an example, if you had it saved in IE faves as "overclocker" as soon as you typed "ov" IE would list the faves starting with "ov"
Can firefox do that ??
