Backup FIREFOX Bookmarks and PASSWORDS

clipped from
To back up your Bookmarks,
  1. Open Firefox

  2. Go in Bookmarks -> Organize Bookmarks

  3. Go to Import and Backup -> Export HTML...

  4. Save it somewhere as a .html file and you're done.

When you want your bookmarks back after a reinstall, simply import this file in the same way..
  1. Go to Documents and Settings > USERNAME > Application Data > Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles > cxhmjww8.default (this name is random)

  2. Backup the following files : key3.db, signons2.txt (if you're using FF 2.0+) OR signons3.txt (if you're using FF 3.0+). These files contain data regarding your saved passwords. After a reinstall, overwrite these files back to this folder.
