When you export the bookmarks, they get compiled to the bookmark.html file that originally resides in the folder I listed above. It then gets saved to whatever path you designate. The reason why is because bookmarks are handled quite differently in FF than those of IE. When you export > import bookmarks in FF it will also place a Hot Search (Like a google add) and add the bookmark links you placed on the toolbar etc.... IE won't do that for you.
But strange thing is, Mike, the two Bookmark HTML files that I got
from using your two methods gave completely different results.
The 'Export' method gives me the correct result with all my bookmarked websites inside, whereas the contents of the Bookmark html file derived from the location C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Firefox\defaults\ profile\bookmark is very different all together. The content of which looks like the default content of FF's Bookmarks. Any thing to do with my partitioning my hard drive into
C: (Sytem drive) and D: (Data drive) drives? Though I doubt it.
Ahh, i see what you are asking now .... apologizes to you and to Tox1c. I thought that you were simply asking where the file from that you wanted to backup and was simply giving you a method to find and then export. The method I was describing was correct, but the they get compiled from the original bookmark.html file and then the individual bookmarks from your user's profile, which as Tox1c stated above is in the Application Data>Mozilla>FF>Profiles>(RandomString)> folder under Documents and Settings.
Sometimes I read into these questions too much...
But yea, the path you are looking for without actually exporting in the method I described above is:
Example: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<randomstring>
