FireFox plugin

Postby drtim » Sun Feb 12, 2017 7:45 am

Can you please confirm for me that when using the FireFox plugin that a complete backup of bookmarks is done? And if I ever needed to just extract from the FireFox profile the bookmarks how would I do that? Thanks.

Hi,

Yes, using the Firefox plugin, you will also back up the bookmarks.
You can only restore the entire profile folder, not the bookmarks individually.

Is there a way to back up the Firefox bookmarks only? If not via FBackup, can you recommend something else? Thanks.

Hi,

You can backup only the bookmarks from Firefox (places.sqlite file) but you might need the entire Profile folder in order to get it to work.
That is why we recommend you to back up the entire Firefox data.
