How do I open a Firefox bookmarks file (.json) without using Firefox?

Q: How do I open a Firefox bookmarks file (.json) without using Firefox?

Had a number of abrupt computer shutdowns due to power outage and now Firefox won't open no matter what I do. I'm trying to recover all my bookmarks before I reinstall Firefox. So, after identifying which file it is (I think) I'm trying to get a look inside so I can record everything.

Thanks! I'm all ears!

Preferred Solution: How do I open a Firefox bookmarks file (.json) without using Firefox?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How do I open a Firefox bookmarks file (.json) without using Firefox?

Your bookmarks and other preferences are stored in a separate and independent location/file on your disk, so you should be able to delete and reinstall Ff without needing to do a special save for them. See if the information linked to below does not, however, answer your question:http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Backing%20up%20and%20restoring%20bookmarks

Could anyone suggest why after installing json v0.7 as an add-on for Firefox 9.01, I still get the pop up for the search application window.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the add-on, as well as setting No Pop Ups in Firefox options.

The PC has AVG Internet Security 2012 running at all times, and the system has been scanned using Malwarebytes. Everything OK.

This is becoming very annoying now as I have to keep clicking the Cancel button many times before the pop up disappears.

So I just thought of doing a SFC scan now to check if my system is good with no corrupt files or not.

Now it seems there are no issues, even Microsoft has said the win update that caused the files to go corrupt is a false alarm in SFC check.


The issue I have: (I've tried removing the update and then re-doing the SFC can now but no result.)
The Tech Cookbook – Windows 7 update (KB3022345) causing corrupt files

The zip file is corrupt in the article so can't run the fix tool.

However I also did CheckSUR and that said NO Errors.

Which I guess is good news.

However how can I fix this issue that sfc scannow says no more corrupt files.

My result log shows the corrupt files.

A:Cannot repair member file “utc.app.json” and other json files

These errors are now caused (as in your case) also by KB3068708.

In the case of KB3022345, I recommend removal of the update, and hiding it if it reappears in Windows Update.
The jury is still out on KB3068708 - you can either uninstall and hide it, or just ignore the errors.

Hey everyone. Why is Firefox 3.6.10 removing the bookmarks from my bookmarks toolbar whenever I add the bookmark to a folder under the bookmarks menu? Note: I am not moving them, I am going to the website and bookmarking them all over again so as to put them in a folder. However, when I do this, the bookmark gets removed from the toolbar and put in the folder. I really don't like this. I want to be able to have my bookmarks in two different places: both on the toolbar and in the folder.
 

A:Why does Firefox remove the bookmarks from my bookmarks toolbar?

Probably a Firefox feature to help you avoid duplicates.

After you have it once just copy it to where you want it. I just tested this with 3.5.13 copying from Bookmarks toolbar to another folder.

when I try to click a link to download a PDF file, it automatically opens file in browser and opens atleast 30 new tabs. In my tool options, I have the download set to "Always ask where to download file to" ... what could be causing this??
 

A:When I open a PDF file in FireFox...

I don't know anything about this, especially all those tabs being opened, but suggest that you first check this:

Tools - Options... - Content - Manage...(under File Types) - See what's set for PDF files. Mine, for example, is Open with Adobe Acrobat plug-in. If you want a simple left click on the link to download instead of opening, I'm not sure if you can or what you'd change the Action to.

You might also make sure you have a recent version of whatever you use to open it. Adobe Acrobat reader is now at version 8.1.1, and you should probably have at least version 8 if you use it.

Hiya,
First time post.
Firefox.exe process invokes in Process Explorer, very briefly, if loaded directly from it’s shortcut, and is gone, without opening a window at all. I see now that upon shutting down the Vidalia bundle (Tor/Privoxy), firefox.exe process does stay started in Process Explorer, but still no window. If instead firefox is called upon by another program, such as filehippo or avast, say, it invokes the firefox.exe process but the browser window is nowhere to be seen, as with directly invokeing without the Vidalia bundle.
ALT-Tab doesn’t show a firefox window open, and right-clicking on the process to bring that window to the front yields a greyed out option in the pop-up menu for ‘window’. So there’s no window. Troubleshooting on my own, I’ve now struggled by with IE, like now, and updated a bunch of programs from filehippo, including firefox itself, to version 3.0.4 build 2008102919, but still no firefox window.

Windows itself has updated this morning. My fellow user, a housemate, has not any such problem with firefox when we switch users. His works fine.
There’s a bunch of crud in my hijack log, and I’ll post that below.

I was just curious if anybody has been receiving the same error message:


"Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system."


I have been getting this on my laptop for a few weeks now, off and on, when I close Mozilla Firefox for whatever reason and try to reopen it immediately after. Usually, after receiving the error message I just wait a few seconds and try again and the browser opens just fine.

However, I now just found out that my cousin has been dealing with the same problem, only worse, when he uses his laptop at home. (different locations, different networks, different brands of laptop.) I witnessed first-hand that he had the same error message, only his did not go away, nor could we get his browser to open. He says this happens to him every time he closes Firefox and tries to reload.

We resolved this issue by opening the task manager and manually ending Mozilla under processes, not applications, since it was not on the applications list, but was on the processes list.

Tell me if you have been experiencing the same or similar issues with Mozilla Firefox. I am curious, because this is the only problem I have ever had with Firefox, other than the occasional browser crash.

Thanks,

.Chris

If I download a Zip file from a website using Firefox 4, or3, the resulting opened file is gibberish. If I do it with explorer 8 or 9 it is fine.
Visible differences are that in opening the file downloaded with explorer it becomes a PDF file and opens sensibly. In explorer the file to be downloaded is SG33V10.zip and this becomes becomes SG33V10.pdf.In Firefox the downloaded file has added a 1.htm to the zip ending and than makes a mess of opening it -the file to be downloaded is SG33V10.zip and on downloading this becomes SG33V10.zip-1.htm which on opening is rubbish

Hello,

I have come to this website because I am at my wit's end with what to do about this piece of malware I have.
I downloaded rkill and Combofix. I have Malware Bytes installed, but I am unable to run or open any of them. My task manager is clouded with consent.exe. Every time I try to open a file, another consent.exe appears in the task manager. I was able to run my anti-virus (Vipre) through hidden icons, but it only found:

fraudtool.win32.fakerean.d

with 2 traces. About a week and a half ago I got rid of (but not completely) a variant of the fake Win 7 Anti-Virus virus', and I'm sure it just crept back up on me. Also I can't run DDS, GMER or Hijack This for a log.

I can access the task manager and Firefox, but that's about it. I'm sure that's just so that it can steal any valuable information I ever put in (bank accounts, etc). When I open my start menu I can't select anything, I used to be able to expand the lower task bar to access mycomputer, but that just got locked up.

I'm running Windows 7 Starter Edition (never again will I ever get a Windows computer after this one...) on a Toshiba netbook.

What can I do from here?

I'm trying to log into ebay and having terrible problems, (other log-in sites let me sign in fine) even though my username is at the top when I first go on, it remembers me from last time and I see I'm logged in. But whenever I goto do something like revise an auction, and it wants me to sign in, it has my username pre-filled out, I just have to pop in my password..fair enough, this is where it starts to go pear shaped.

Sometimes this works, but when I goto revise an auction or something like 'change the category', basically do something that requires ebay to do carry out an action, firefox actually tries to download a .dll file! and I can't go no further.

First of all, I'm running windows 7 pro 64bit, with the latest version of firefox installed.

This has got me stumped. In xp I had a program set to regularly backup my firefox profiles folder. The most important file in this folder was (and still is) bookmarks.html.

Since I moved to windows 7 I've had the following small problem (to save anybody wasting time telling me things I already know, I am aware of exporting bookmarks from the bookmarks menu, and I also know about mozbackup, but I like the mozilla profile backup to run along with all my other automated backups).

I have googled all over the place about this, and I know that bookmarks.html is meant to be in

C:\Users\ME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\"random_numbered_folder".default, but it is not.

There is an out of date bookmarks html folder in there (the entries are not what I currently have in firefox bookmarks). It's obviously not where firefox is getting the bookmarks from, as I shut down firefox, moved the file to desktop so that there was no bookmarks.html in the profiles folder, and restarted firefox.

When I restarted firefox all my bookmarks were there exactly as they should be.

I've searched the C drive to death but I cannot find out where the current bookmarks.html is.

Can anyone shed some light on this.

Many thanks for any replies.

Since I moved to windows 7 I've had the following small problem (to save anybody wasting time telling me things I already know, I am aware of exporting bookmarks from the bookmarks menu, and I also know about mozbackup, but I like the mozilla profile backup to run along with all my other automated backups).

I have googled all over the place about this, and I know that bookmarks.html is meant to be in

C:\Users\ME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\"random_numbered_folder".default, but it is not.

There is an out of date bookmarks html folder in there (the entries are not what I currently have in firefox bookmarks). It's obviously not where firefox is getting the bookmarks from, as I shut down firefox, moved the file to desktop so that there was no bookmarks.html in the profiles folder, and restarted firefox.

When I restarted firefox all my bookmarks were there exactly as they should be.

I've searched the C drive to death but I cannot find out where the current bookmarks.html is.

Can anyone shed some light on this.

Many thanks for any replies.


Bookmarks are stored in:

I build a new computer not too long ago and in doing so I forgot to save all of my book marks in firefox. I still have my old HD in my new computer with a new HD as well. I have not really touched the old drive except to move things from it to the new one( it is starting to go bad). Anyway, I have installed firefox on my new computer but I need some of the bookmarks from the older HD. Anyone know how I can go and get the old ones and save them to new HD? Thanks for the help.

A:Getting Bookmarks From Another Hd (firefox)

You can get the bookmarks from your old Firefox profile folder.This is a hidden file, so you'll have to set windows to show hidden files:How to see hidden files in Windows Then navigate to:C:\ Documents and Settings \ user name \ Application Data \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles \ default.7dp \ Bookmark.htmlEither copy, or move that file, to the same location on your new harddrive, replacing the one that's there.

I've just upgraded to XP from Win98.

When I right click on a bookmark all I get is a little white square instead of the shortcut menu.

Mozilla (Firefox) is strange the way they upgrade. It is recommended that an older version be removed before the newer version is installed. (Normally, most upgrades take care of that for you).

Assuming that Firefox was installed before you upgraded to XP, I wonder if it would help if you un-installed Firefox and then re-installed it.

Hi- I am in need of finding where my Bookmarks are located in the Firefox file folder. I'm hoping to be able to export them to IE7 which is my only working browser. Firefox (1.5) will no longer open. It stopped working after it was attempting to install some FF upgrade software (? application). While doing so the system locked up which it is prone to do several times a day-another post elsewhere, later. I am tempted to go ahead and install FF2.0 but fear that if V.1.5 is corrupted, I'll lose my hundreds of bookmarks for ever. Only a few are resident in IE7. Any suggestions will be deeply appreciated.

A:Where are Firefox Bookmarks

Your bookmarks.html is in your profile folder.
C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xx.default
where xx is a random string of characters
Application Data is a hidden folder, use windows explorer Tools> Folder Options> View tab, check show hidden files and folders.
This might be of help.
