    mozilla backup not possible ?

    i switched to hardy from gutsy ...so i wanted to import all the bookmarks as well as username/passwords from gutsy....i dont remember all my names/pwds

    during installation, i was asked whether i would like to import firefox data from windows...but not about ff on gutsy..which was on other partition !!

    still i moved to .mozilla in gutsy and somewhere i got an bookmark html file somewhere and i relplaced the hardy one with this.
    but this didnt help.
    i then tried import from the ff on hardy ...still it didnt do anything.

    plus now i have no idea of how to import all my username and passwords!


    is it all bcoz i am switching from ff2 to ff3 ?

    Instead of just taking the bookmarks file, copy the entire Gutsy ~/.mozilla folder to Hardy's ~/.mozilla, and it should work. You should have all your old settings, history, extensions, and bookmarks.
