    Hello

    I am looking to import my bookmarks from my old mac's hard drive which crashed, I replaced the hard drive and reinstalled Mac OS X 10.8.5

    If you are able to help import bookmarks from my old hard drive, that would be great, thank you.

    You wants this plist file I selected. You can see the folder path at the bottom. I blurred out my user account name, so your will be different, but you get the idea.

    Once you replace the plist in the new drive, do not start Safari. Reboot first to clear the plist cache, then you can open Safari and you should see the bookmarks.

    How can I access the library on my external hard drive copy of my old mac?

    Never mind I have my bookmarks :D now just the keychains.

    In that same user Library folder there is a Keychains folder. You want the login.keychain file from that folder.
