Does anyone know where are URL-s stored on the "Samfind bookmarks bar" firefox extention on OS X Snow Leopard?

I need to find the specific file, as I can no longer boot up the hard disk that samfind ran on earlier, but I wouldn't like to loose my bookmarks.

It's stored as part of your Firefox profile in ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles.

In that directory is a profile directory named e.g. nhq878b7.default.

The file containing the Samfind bookmarks is samfindlayout.xml. To improve your chances of restoring everything, just copy the entire directory and all its contents.

Oh man thank you so much. I really do wonder HOW you just knew that?! :) – Bencze Jan 19 '12 at 1:04
@bencze I installed it and looked for it. Simple enough. You're welcome. – Daniel Beck Jan 19 '12 at 9:44
