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
