I am running Vista and using Firefox. I had to reinstall Firefox because of hanging issues with webpages. When I got back up and running in Firefox I noticed all my bookmarks had disappeared. Fortunately I was able to import them from Internet Explorer but noticed that when it was completed all the bookmarks were in a long list. Previously I had them grouped in folders. How can I save bookmarks in the future where they stay in their correct folders so when I import or export they are where they should be?

you will have to reorganize them to your liking, and once you have that done, export them to a .json file. At the top, hit the bookmarks button, > organize bookmarks > import and backup and follow the prompts.

thank you for your reply. I did export them to a folder on the desktop with the tag .json When I tried to open the file it says I can't open it. I just wanted to make sure all the bookmarks were exported to the file.

when you open it, you have to do so from FF. Go again to the import/backup area and import them from that function.
