MandrivaLinux2006 - Can you store bookmarks onto your personal files/CD?


This is probably one big NOOB question, but I was wondering if you can store these bookmarks onto a CD or some other folder?

The point: I want to be able to save these bookmarks in case I format and reinstall Linux. It'd be easier to copy it from the CD (along with my other personal files), than to go to each site and re-do them all over again.

This would be for Mozilla Firefox.

You sure can, it's just a standard .htm file.

Mine is located here for mozilla. You path may vary...

~/.mozilla/default/8vgn05n0.slt

use:

#locate bookmarks.htm

It's a different folder, but I found it, thanks!
I didn't know where to type those commands in, but I remember using /.kde before, so i tried the same with /.mozilla, and in no time at all, i found bookmarks.html (mine has the L anyway, not sure if all do or not)
Well, I clicked on that, and I see the list of my bookmarks, thanks a ton!
