Where are Firefox bookmark URLs stored on Windows 7? Where does Firefox keep bookmarks?

AmazonI use Windows 7. One day I had to do a full re-installation of the Firefox web browser, and I wanted to backup my bookmarks. Question is: Where are bookmark URLs located on my PC? Where does Firefox store the bookmarks on Windows 7?

Answer

Firefox keeps the bookmarks at the following location:

C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\e2jqfdpg.default\bookmarkbackups

The directory e2jqfdpg.default may be named differently on your system.

As you can see, in this directory, each file is a complete list of bookmarks backed up on the date as indicated by the file name. One such file looks like this:

bookmarks-2015-05-07_210_5V1TZnEhJnmi5w==.jsonlz4

Firefox runs the full backup of your bookmark URLs on a regular basis. The file ends in .jsonlz4. You can backup this file and import it to the new Firefox program after you have re-installed it successfully.

In fact, if you uninstall Firefox via Control Panel -> Uninstall a program, this folder will still be there.
