So my HD would not boot ubuntu so I used the install disk to gain access to the hard drive and copied the entire HD over to an external drive. I then did a fresh install on a new HD but cannot seem to find the bookmarks when I look through the files that were backed up on the external drive.

Thanks

For firefox, bookmarks are normally hidden in:

.mozilla/firefox/XXXXX.default/bookmarks.html
