    My Firefox and bookmarks.....

    I use FF all the time both on my desktop and my laptop.
    I keep my bookmarks up to date by keeping an updated Json file on my desktop and a backup on an external drive.

    I updated last week when I got the newest version of FF. My json file is also up to date.

    I don't brows much on the laptop but decided to update the FF. When I downloaded the latest ff I tried to import the json file but when I looked at the bookmarks.. they were the old set. I tried repeatedly to delete the old ones and did it manually... I uninstalled ff and reinstalled it but every time I try to get my new json file imported, it always loads the old set.

    I searched for ff and mozilla files to delete any but didn't find any. I even dumped my cookies and cache but somehow I still have and old set of bookmarks turning up.
    How do I get rid of this hidden file?

    How do you save the bookmarks? Save it twice in a row, about a minute apart, see if a new file and its backup file is same-date. I use FEBE to save everything, so I'm not what FF does anymore with saving bookmarks.
