Backing up Firebird bookmarks.

I'm trying to make a backup of my Firebird bookmarks for installing a new distro. I can find at least 3 files with "bookmarks" in their name. But two are HTML and don't contain my bookmarks at all, and another is a binary file. So just how do I do it?

This is what I get for switching from Galeon...

I'm guessing it would be the same as Mozilla... In my home directory, there is a hidden directory called .mozilla. If I drill down through it, I can find a bookmarks.html that contains all my bookmarks. I can copy that somewhere.

Or, I can click the Bookmarks menu / Manage Bookmarks. Click the Tools menu / Export, and it will ask where I want to export my bookmarks file.

Most likely in ~/.phoenix/

find ${HOME} -iname bookmarks.html
