There was a time I was gathering Facebook groups that were relevant to what I was doing.
The only way I could do that was to bookmark any group I find relevant to what I was doing.
Since it was a large list to work with, I had the need to use these bookmarks on my mobile phone and I was not synchronizing my desktop browser with the mobile browser so the only option was to export my Firefox bookmarks and use on my mobile.
Apart from the scenario I just shared above, there many other instances where you may need to export your Firefox bookmarks.
In a case where you are having some glitches with your Mozilla web browser which will require you to reinstall the web browser, your bookmark is one of the important data that you need to export and keep safe.
This will help you when the reinstallation process is complete.
All you’ll need to do will be simply importing the exported HTML file in the fresh install of your Firefox browser.
So let’s get straight into it and learn how to export Firefox bookmarks.
How to export Firefox bookmarks
Follow the steps below to export your Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file which can be used to import into another web browser or as a backup.
Here we go:
- Launch your Firefox browser
