Problems copying bookmarks from old Hard Drive to new hard drive

The motherboard on my old Windows Vista 64 - bit is dead. The hard drive is still accessible. I bought a new PC with Windows 7 and installed Firefox. I find the.default file for Firefox on the old drive hard and copied and pasted in my new profile on my new hard drive. The old hard drive is connected to my new PC with an external hard drive enclosure. I tried looking for in my old profile user Firefox hard disk of old. I do this by clicking on my old username, go to Program Files (x 86) and only one program file that I found for DNA. Firefox has been installed on my old PC, so I'm surprised that I can't find what it listed under Program Files (x 86) on this drive. If I search the old drive for 'signet', it evokes my bookmarksbackup and other files of bookmarks '.json '. I tired bookmarksbackup copy for my new Firefox profile on the new hard drive and it seems to work, but the old bookmarks do not appear when I open Firefox. I looked at the links troubleshooting for the same problem that others have posted, but they seem irrelevant, because I can't find the sqlite or the directory where my old Firefox settings are stored on my old hard drive. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Firefox settings are not stored in program files, but they are stored under APPDATA.

If you take the newer JSON file you have, open Firefox, press Control, Shift and B at the same time, then go to "Import and backup" then 'restore', then choose file, you can import it like this?

  • How can I move bookmarks from old laptop XP to new Windows 7 one?

    My new laptop (still awaiting delivery) will have Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit. I read on this site that it's OK to use Firefox, even though it is designed for 32-bit, but I don't know how to transfer my favorites.

    I took a glance at the sync add-on. Unfortunately, this has been deleted by its developer.

    Anyone know how I can transfer the bookmarks on the new laptop?

    Thank you.

  • How to get around the problem of printing from the printer driver Adobe PDF for Notepad instead of a PDF Document?

    How to get around the problem of printing from the printer driver Adobe PDF for Notepad instead of a PDF Document? I tried the tool 'Repair Acrobat Installation' and other problems listed on the forums, but nothing worked. In the Notepad document is the following ' % [ProductName: distill] % X937B6DD4 not found, using the mail service.» X07BB154E not found, by using the messaging service. % [Page: 1] %% % [Page: 2] % % [Page: 3] % % [Page: 4] % % [Page: 5] % X4EEBB81F not found, by using the messaging service. %% [Error: invalidfont;] OffendingCommand: show; ErrorInfo: CharOffsets ss %% [Flushing: rest of work (end of file) will be ignored] %% %% [warning: PostScript error.] No PDF file produced. ] %%."

    The log file indicates that the Distiller cannot find fonts and besides, fonts with very weird names. (These names can often appear when printing from an application, WPF such as Internet Explorer 9, 10 or 11.)

    My best guess is that the problem is with the options set for the PostScript of PDF from Adobe printer driver instance. Exit the application you were initially impression since. Open the Adobe PDF printer Properties . Then click the Advanced tab. Then click on the button default printing . This should produce a significant window default print Adobe PDF is already opened in the Adobe PDF settings tab. On this tab, there is a checkbox to rely on system only fonts; do not use fonts in the document. If this box is checked, uncheck it and press apply , then OK. Then go to the general tab and press the button Preferences giving the window entitled Adobe PDF printing preferences. Again once, look for the box to rely on system only fonts; do not use document fonts. If this box is checked, uncheck it and press apply , then OK. Then back in the Adobe PDF Properties dialog box main, press apply (if it is enabled), and then click OK. Re-enter the app you were original print and try to print again. Let us know if that fixes the problem.

    PS: Unfortunately, rely on fonts system only turned on by default, causing problems for many applications. I always recommend turning it off (i.e., unchecking it)!

  • Transfer all of the data files and program from old computer (Vista) to new computer (Windows 7)

    I've been using a Dell xps 420, 32-bit Vista since 2008. I just bought a new Dell xps-8700, 64-bit with windows 7 preinstalled.

I read somewhere that the method of cable will transfer all my installed programs. Is this true?

    No, it won't, it will transfer personal files and settings. You will have to reinstall your applications from the original installation files or install CDs and DVDs.

    If you really want to move your applications to the Vista computer, you will need to buy a commercial programs such as Laplink PC Mover that will allow you to move your programs:

  • I need to move my copy of my old computer to a new CS6.  I need my license reset?

    I need to move my copy of my old computer to a new CS6.  I need my license reset?

    You are allowed to have the software installed and enabled on both machines, so there is nothing you need to install other than (and not move) the software on the new machine, unless you already have it enabled on both machines.

    If you do not plan to use the old machine again or prefer to simply remove the software, or you want to keep an activation of another machine at any given time, it is preferable that you clear beforehand.  To disable an opening of applications and choose Help-> Deactivate.  Once disable you there is nothing else you need to do unless you want to uninstall as well to gain more disk space.

  • Error message "unable to copy the file"hiberfil", it is used by another person or program." Problem copying content from your PC to external hard drive.

    Original title: problem to copy content from your PC to external hard drive.

    I use Windows XP 2000 and am trying to restore my pc to factory settings as it is continuously 'stick '. When you try to copy my drive "c" on an external drive I get a message saying "unable to copy the file"hiberfil", it is used by another person or program." Close any program that might be using the file and try again "." What is 'hiberfil' and how do I close it down as I am not aware that I use?

    Concerning

    Pete

    The hiberfil.sys will be created every time that you start... If you put in hibernation enabled in your control panel, Power Options and the file is 'open' to think that you can actually choose to Hibernate at any given time.  When you Hibernate XP gives a note of it and will write a hiberfil.sys sometimes important in the c:\ folder so that when XP fires again upwards and returns from hibernation, XP will read the hiberfil.sys file and return to the situation that you were in when you put into hibernation.

    I use to be a chronic hibernant because it takes less time to return after hibernation as a cold start.  Sometimes, it can actually be slower that a cold so start your system based on the amount of RAM has.  The more RAM you have, the more your hiberfil.sys will, if sometimes it's faster to move with just a cold start if you Hibernate (26,03 seconds for me).

    If hiberfil.sys is giving you a hard time (you would not in any way copy it) disable hibernation in your Power Options and the file will be deleted immediately since it would be is no longer necessary.  That would solve this, but if you are trying to copy the entire C drive, you will have other files to complain after that.

    It is certainly possible to make a complete copy of the C drive, if you want, but you will have to initialize on something next to your drive hard if you want to do this so the XP files are not used - then you can copy anything and everything.  You can get some imaging software of disc that will also help you.

    It depends on what the problem is you want to solve and what you wand to end up with when you're done (so far, unspecified).

    I would work on figure our why your XP is paste and fix it in place.  XP should not be sticky.

  • How to copy data from one hard drive to another after the upgrade?

    I have a HP e9220y, and I recently bought a new hard drive for it. There is nothing wrong with the former, but this one has a 64 MB cache and 7200 RPM so I hope it will be a little faster. I installed it and it works fine, but I want to copy all data from the old disk to the new so I can start everything off the faster hard drive and I seem to have a bit of doing wrong. I can't just copy and paste because of the Windows system files that are used. And last night when I set up Windows backup, and went to bed, when I thought it that Windows has recovered from a stop unexpected, rebooted, and only 2 GB of data saved obtained.

    What is the best way to move all the data from the old drive to the new drive, make it the default C: drive and move partitions system and factory_image as well? Thank you!

    (1) If your old drive and the new drive is Seagate or Western Digital, then free House with their cloning software.

    (2) before starting the clone process, I found best to perform a disk cleanup and defragmentation.

    Cloning software to copy the two partitions. Example:

    Old drive 250 GB formatted to 232 C: created 220 and 12 GB D:

    New 1000GO drive formatted to 931 GB created 919 GB C: and D: to 12 GB

    The "Seagate disc Wizard" cloning software will let create you a clone automatic or manual partition resizing.

    The two modes to offer an overview of the actions before commit you. The manual on this page of Seagate (PDF) is 68 pages.

    After the cloning process he complete, all you have to do is swap on the disks. Besure to connect your new disc on the original motherboard SATA port.

  • How can I transfer encrypted files from old hard drive removed (transfer windows easy?)

    Hello

    I'm trying to get some files off my old hard drive encrypted. He has xp on it, and I can't start on my new computer. Since it is a separate, apparently, I can't do either windows easy transfer. Is it possible for me to locate the certificate and key, or to transfer files with the key and the certificate on my new computer (I have password from the old computer if I need that)? Can I somehow run WET on this hard drive for keys/certificates can be transferred. This seems to be a common problem from what I have read.
    Otherwise, do you have ideas on how to start my old xp disk on my new system without reformatting?
    Very important to get these files.
    Thank you!

    First of all, I assume you mean encrypted files (EFS, Encrypting File System).  These files are encrypted with a key that is still encrypted in your system like a certificate.  In order to read your encrypted on any other system files, you must restore the certificate from a backup.  The short article is mandatory for anyone considering the use of EFS:
    "Best Practices for encrypting file system"

    Special attention to the subsection down titled "why you should back up your certificates.

  • Transfer emails from old hard drive

    I have the profile of an old e-mail account folder and try to open with an installation of thunderbird on a new system.

    Ideally I would have just opened them when starting from the old hard drive, but for some reason any that it does not start properly (as soon as it starts to book all the USB devices power off).

    Because it's just the profile folder and not a file exported or saved, I can't get anything in the new installation of Thunderbird to recognize the file. I think that all the data will be there (the file is has a few GB), I just need to be able to read.

    I tried the methods already in the support pages, but they seem to require you to have exported preemptively profile or have something installed on the old hard drive to facilitate the transfer.

    Any help is appreciated massively

    See you soon,.

  • Portable hard drive from old notebook in the new computer.

    Hello

    I have a portable dv-9830us recently bit it.  8600GS got flakey.  I bought a laptop DV7-7000 series and wanted to pass on the old hard drive in the 9830us and put it in the DV7-7000.  When I put the old hard drive in the new laptop, I got a BSOD that flashed by too fast for me to read.  He tried to repair the installation of win 7, which I allowed him to try, but it failed.  I'm thinking that it is a hardware/driver incompatibility related issue, since the new book obviously has different hardware.  Is there a way to get the existing windows installation on the old hard drive to detect hardware on start up again and install new drivers to allow it to boot on the new laptop?  I really don't want to reinstall 4 years worth of things on the new machine.  Both machines are running legitimate Win 7 Home edition.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.
