I build a new computer not too long ago and in doing so I forgot to save all of my book marks in firefox. I still have my old HD in my new computer with a new HD as well. I have not really touched the old drive except to move things from it to the new one( it is starting to go bad). Anyway, I have installed firefox on my new computer but I need some of the bookmarks from the older HD. Anyone know how I can go and get the old ones and save them to new HD? Thanks for the help.

You can get the bookmarks from your old Firefox profile folder.
This is a hidden file, so you'll have to set windows to show hidden files:
How to see hidden files in Windows
Then navigate to:
C:\ Documents and Settings \ user name \ Application Data \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles \ default.7dp \ Bookmark.html
Either copy, or move that file, to the same location on your new harddrive, replacing the one that's there.
