My mac is no longer supported by firefox. Can I recover my bookmarks and import them into another browser?

The detail is in the question

FF update to 13 and now you can't open ? sorry about that.
1. Download (with your safari) a copy of 3.6.28 from
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older
2. '''Trash''' the current Firefox application to do a clean install.
3. Install the version that you have downloaded (3.6.28).
Do not select to remove your personal data, your profile data is stored elsewhere in the [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Firefox Profile Folder], so you won't lose your bookmarks or other personal data.

  • My hard drive failed. I was able to restore my files from an external hard drive. I have my bookmarks saved but am not able to import them into Firefox as the only option is to import them from another browser. Any suggestions?

    -My hard drive failed.
    -I was able to restore my files from an external hard drive.
    -My bookmarks are saved to a folder on my new hard drive.
    -I am not able to import them from this folder on my hard drive into Firefox.
    - the only option Firefox offers for importing bookmarks is to import them from another browser...is there another way?

    In Firefox the bookmarks are saved in a database file called places.sqlite in the profile folder. If you have got this file from the external hard drive you can restore the bookmarks by copying this file to your current profile folder. For details of the location of the profile folder see either https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Profiles or http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox

  • How to copy my Firefox bookmarks and paste them into another computer?

    OK. I found an answer in a thread here but it is already closed. I have an additional question. The moderator said there:
    Quoting:
    Depending on what you want to do there are a couple of options.
    If you want to replace the bookmarks on the other computer with the bookmarks from your desktop, use the method in this link to backup the bookmarks to a file and then restore them on the other computer - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Backing+up+and+restoring+bookmarks
    If you want to add the bookmarks from the desktop to those that already exist on the other computer, you need to export them to an HTML file, and import that file on the other computer. See these links for details:
    https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Exporting+bookmarks+to+an+HTML+file
    https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Importing+Bookmarks+from+an+HTML+File
    I want to do the second one - "add the bookmarks from the desktop to those that already exist on the other computer"
    The problem is that my Firefox is version 4.0. I read somewhere in the bookmarks topics that I should have done nothing before upgrading to version higher than 12.
    The thing is my computer is 8 years old and I have only 512 MB RAM. There is no way to upgrade more that v.4.0. My computer can not handle it.
    Any suggestions? Can I export and import with v.4.0 safely?

    You would have to export the bookmarks to an HTML file on the old (XP) computer.
    *Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks > Import & Backup > Export Bookmarks to HTML
    Then you can copy this file to an USB stick and import this file in Firefox on the other computer.<br />
    Importing an HTML backup will merge those bookmarks with already existing bookmarks.
    You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
    *Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder (Open Directory)

  • How do i expoert files from Outlook and import them into iphone? operate with Mac OSx at home and trying to convert contacts and calendars from work and carrying on iphone. txs

    How do I export calendar and contact files in Outlook and import them into iphone 4. I operate Mac OS X at home and wish to carry my work information with me on my iPhone.

    You do not export anything.
    Instead, sync the content from Outlook to your device via iTunes.
    Try reading the manual, it's included on the device or here.

  • I want to take all my bookmarked sites on my office computer and import them into my home computer...both macs, both have same versions of firefox...how do i do that?

    I don't see anywhere to even back up my bookmarked sites....please help

    If you want to keep them synced automatically, you should definitely try out [[What is Firefox Sync|Firefox Sync]]. Otherwise, just go to Bookmarks > Organize bookmarks and click the Import and backup button (It's the star with the square arrows in it). Then export HTML, move that file to the home computer and then follow the steps above but choose import HTML.

  • I just updated to Lion and my Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint will not open because PowerPC applications are no longer supported. I bought this software from Apple and the store installed it when I bought the MAC. What do I do?

    I just updated to Lion and my Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint will not open because PowerPC applications are no longer supported. I bought this software from Apple and the store installed it when I bought the MAC. What do I do?

    Buy version 2011 of MS Office.
    Or you can download OpenOffice, LibreOffice or NeoOffice, which all come very close to working with MS files just like MS Office does.
    Or iWord, I have heard, you can purchase.

    What software can I use on my new Mac that no longer supports "AppleWorks"? To easily transfer my database for mailmerge.

    Two thoughts:
    (1)     It is possible that your Adobe software was the result of belonging to a now-discontinued Adobe Print Service Provider program where for a certain annual membership fee, print service providers were provided with (a) both a Windows and Macintosh license to the Adobe print-oriented software products (such as InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Acrobat) and (b) special direct product support as well as the ability to put your name on Adobe's website as a member of this program. The program ended over a year ago if I remember correctly.
    (2)     You may wish to contact Adobe Customer Support (not Technical Support) and see if they can track down any and all licenses associated with your company. If you have the names of the former employees who worked with this software, it would be helpful. Likewise, if you were a member of the discontinued Adobe Print Service Provider program, you may have some options for upgrading/updating the software you have.
    Unfortunately, you cannot get any more definitive information about your situation on these forums.
    Good luck.

  • I recently uploaded 10.8, but I have a number of VALUABLE old files which I can no longer read because "power PC applications are no longer supported.  How can I retrieve them?

    I recently uploaded 10.8, but I have a number of VALUABLE old files which I can no longer read because "power PC applications are no longer supported.  How can I retrieve them"?

    Here is a post I assembled for another with a similar problem:
    Unfortunately you got caught up in the minor miracle of Rosetta.  Originally licensed by Apple when it migrated from the PowerPC CPU platform that it had used from the mid-1990's until the Intel CPU platform in 2006, Rosetta allowed Mac users to continue to use their library of PPC software transparently in emulation.
    However, Apple's license to continue to use this technology expired with new releases of OS X commencing with Lion (and now Mountain Lion).  While educational efforts have been made over the last 6 years, the fact is that Rosetta was SO successful that many users were caught unaware UNTIL they upgraded to Lion or Mountain Lion.
    Workarounds:
    1. If your Mac will support it, restore OS X Snow Leopard;
    2.  If your Mac will support it, partition your hard drive or add an external hard drive and install Snow Leopard into it and use the "dual-boot" method to choose between your PPC software or Lion/Mt. Lion;
    3. Upgrade to an Intel compatible versions of your software, or find alternatives that will open your data files;
    3.  Install Snow Leopard (with Rosetta) into Parallels:
                                  [click on image to enlarge]
    Full Snow Leopard installation instructions here:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1365439
    NOTE: STEP ONE of the instructions must currently be completed on a Snow Leopard or Lion Mac and the resulting modified Snow Leopard.cdr install file can then be moved over to your Mountain Lion Mac for completion of the remaining steps.
    NOTE 2:  Computer games with complex, 3D or fast motion graphics make not work well or at all in virtualization.

  • I had an old version on my iBook G4 Mac 10.4.11 and I tried to upload and now lost everything. How can I get my bookmarks and firefox back?

    I would like to install the older version that will work with this OS abut I can't find anything your website. I did find an answer for OS 3 and a link to firefox 2.0 but I know I had firefox 3.0 and would like that back.
    thanks.

    For older Macs that aren't supported in Firefox 4.0, try TenFourFox for PowerPC's running Mac 10.4.11 & 10.5.8 . <br />

    Or you can get 3.6.16 here. <br />

  • I just downloaded Firefox 5 and it said that my Yahoo toolbar will not work with it. Is this true? If so I will not use this new version and will switch to another browser if Firefox stops supporting the Yahoo toolbar. Thank you.

    I just downloaded Firefox 5 and it said that my Yahoo toolbar will not work with it. Is this true? If so I will not use this new version and will switch to another browser if Firefox stops supporting the Yahoo toolbar. Thank you.

    Add-ons contain a range of compatible Firefox versions, and Firefox honors the listed range by disabling the add-on if you are trying to run it on an unlisted version.
    I'm sure Yahoo! will update its toolbar eventually, but not every add-on maker supports beta versions of software.

    But why if you're running 10.6 do you need to do this? AW works fine in 10.6 with Rosetta.
    (BTW,  you're in the older iMac PPC forum.)
