    Hello,

    My MBP HDD recently crashed and I'm trying to re-install all of the bookmarks from my last TM backup.
    However, I can't seem to find them in the usual place(s) that people are claiming they are located (/Library/Safari/.plist for example).
    In fact, my browsers (Safari, Chrome, Camino and FF) are not even folders in /Library.

    Please let me know how to get all of those bookmarks back.

    Thanks,

    J.

    Sounds like you are looking in the main system Library folder and not your user Library folder. The user Library Folder is hidden by default. Just hold the option key when you click the Go menu and you will see your user Library folder there. Within that folder look for the Safari folder and the file Bookmarks.plist .
