    hey guys,

    I made a clone of my HDD before doing a clean install of the 10.6.3. I am trying to locate the bookmarks.html in the cloned HDD to restore the bookmarks to Firefox.. but no luck. Does anyone know where exactly the bookmarks are stored for firefox?

    Thanks!

    angelwatt, thanks for your response. I located the bookmarks.html but it only contains the default firefox bookmark entries. Weird. It is ok. I found the link for what I was looking for from one of the print outs I took. Thanks again! :)
