It does work OK. I am having massive timeout probs too today. It's with the businesses being open, and the kids off school. ISP server is flooded.

Hello LH I sympathize with all your problems ...its been like this for 4 days in my
house...visitors dont know what date to "go back home" after two days...I think its a good
time to go home in your things lol well ...its been 5 days now and I am finally Alone...
this is a good feeling sometimes lol

So I try your Moz Backup ...the language was in kind of code and/or a very foreign language
to me ..so no back up for my Bookmarks MozBackup really did not work ...I am ready to Upgrade to Windows 7 and those
bookmarks are very important to me ...
Is there another program that can do it ....

Thanks again!
Have great Holidays my GeekFriends!
Advice: tell your visitors after two days...they can go home

Does Xmarks can do the job?

There are two easy ways to save the backups,
Click on bookmarks then organize then backup ,save to desktop then email to yourself as attachment,
or click bookmarks then organize then export as html then save it to desktop and email to yourself as attachment .

After upgrade import the saved file back into firefox .
If you want to save the whole profile its just as easy.
Navigate to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default

username is your logon name the xx's are the random letters FF names the default folder
select all files and folders in profile and using 7zip right click and select add to archive
then again email file to your self.
then after you can unzip the file and copy and replace the profile files into your new installation.
