How do you transfer bookmarks FF Ver 3.0 from one computer(WIN2k) to another(XP)? I know that the bookmarks.html file is hidden and I know where it is but when I transfer from WIN2K machine to the XP machine the old bookmarks are still there and not the one I want. Obviously I am not in the right spot.

Any help?

The bookmarks are no longer stored in the file you have listed above, in Firefox 3 and above they are stored in a file called places.sqlite and you can find that file in your profile folder. There are also automated solutions to do this, some of which are discussed here.

Mozilla> FireFox directory> (hidden in Linux .mozilla)> Firefox> default> places.sqlite...
Places.SQLite is the file that holds All your bookmarks... Very Cool!

Thanks, Landis! Did you notice this thread was from June 2008? :D
