Moving Bookmarks only --- backup of bookmarks in Firefox

In Windows XP, Firefox profile folder is located at "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\". Firefox saves backup copy of your bookmarks in the "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\sometext.default\bookmarkbackups" folder. So all you have to do is in your new FF instance, go to the profiles\sometext.default folder, and replace the old bookmarks.html file with the one you are copying over.

Thats all to it. Within a minute you can have your bookmarks in the new FF instance. This is the manual way of doing it. FF has import wizard which will do the same for you. I found this method since I was working on 2 machines and I just wanted to take bookmarks on new machine without any extensions.
