I wiped out most of my / and can only use liveCD. I had /home backed up but forgot to save my bookmarks.

While my old version of ubuntu won't load, there are still some files left,(error occurred during reformatting).
What directory and what folder are my personal bookmarks (Firefox 2)?

I don't know where Firefox 3 saves them but Firefox 2 saved them in your .firefox or .mozilla-firefox profiles folder bookmark.html file.

They're in /home/[user]/.mozilla/firefox/[random].default There is a file called bookmarks.html that holds your bookmarks.

Thanks.
I'll get busy recovering those.
