Hey everyone,

I was just wondering, is there anything I need to do to move my bookmarks to a new Mac book Pro, as long as I have a Firefox account?

(I know nothing about "accounts".)

Otherwise, simply copy places.sqlite from old machine to new (with FF closed) overwriting the new, if it exists.

i assume the copy&paste for windows is same across other OS.

This article explains how to selectively transfer Firefox user data and settings to a new Firefox profile

ofc you can try to zip and unpack the whole profile and copy its content in a pre-set profile (first start).
maybe you need to start twice to have all buttons again.
