Browser Bookmarks and Stored Emails - What Folder are they in?


Hello forum,

Can anyone please tell me in what folder the bookmarks for Mozilla Firefox are kept, in the directory tree?

And in what folder are the received emails kept in Kmail (Kontact)?

I just did a clean install after a computer disaster and lost all of my bookmarks and emails but I have them archived in a backup image from another operating system on the same computer. But I don't know where the bookmarks and emails are stored in order to restore them back in Mandriva.

I am running Mandriva 2006 Official.

Thanks very much in advance,
Roy

Code:
/home/yourusername/.mozilla/firefox/6885ggfdd.default/bookmarks.html
(where 6885ggfdd.default is name of whatever directory is in there, ie. the name of your profile)

Thank You

Thank you tkedwards,

You certantly put me on the right track. Thanks.

First, I had to change Konqueror to show hidden files.



The emails were in /home/roy/.kde/share/apps/Kmail/mail/inbox/cur

The bookmarks for Mozilla were in /home/roy/.mozilla/firefox/6765fd5o.default/bookmarks.html



I guess the difference was that I am in Mandriva 2006, which hasn't been out too long.

Thanks again,

Roy

That's interesting, I heard they were moving the location in the latest version of Kontact.
