Hi I need to back up my bookmarks onto a USB stick,because i have to wipe my desktop computer clean.
This is what I have done so far......
I went into Program files threw Cdrive and i see nothing there,it says bookmarks but when i open it ,NOTHING.

I also opened the firefox window and at the top i opened bookmarks and went itno Organize Bookmarks,once there I selected all and export them to my desktop(it looks like ....(The E for internet explorer) then copy and paste them into my USB .
Opened the USB and it gives me a file that looks like the E for internet explore and its in a document file HTML fromat.

I click on it to open and it sends me to a window to how to use Bookmarks.
it doesn't show any of my fav.links .
What I'm I doing wrong?

Hi DarkAngel25,

See if there is something in this KB Article Bookmarks that helps.

Also, you may want to consider downloading the extension FEBE.
FEBE backs up your extensions, themes, and your bookmarks, preferences, passwords, cookies and just about everything else Firefox offers (it can even backup/restore your entire profile).

Another simple utility for creating backups to consider is MozBackup.

~Edit: To add additional info.
