    Don't lose links/bookmarks...........SAVE THEM.

    This is for Firefox users:

    It's important to save a copy of your links/bookmarks, it's straightforward enough and could save you a lot of headaches and problems if you accidentaly lose them. Here's how to do it.


    TO EXPORT BOOKMARKS (save them)

    1. Click on Bookmarks on the menu bar top left of page.
    2. Select Import and backup.
    3. Select Export bookmarks to HTML.
    You can then choose to save the file to a destination of your choice. I save mine to a usb external storage device. I do this about once a month (or after adding a few more bookmarks which ever is sooner) and delete the previously saved folder when complete. The good thing about saving in the HTML format is you can open the saved file and ALL of your bookmark links are CLICKABLE and will take you to your site.



    TO IMPORT BOOKMARKS (restore them)

    Follow steps 1 and 2 above and then for step 3 select Import bookmarks from HTML.
    This proceedure will restore your bookmarks and still keep any others that you added subsequently.



    This bit is IMPORTANT



    In step 3 TO EXPORT BOOKMARKS (save them) you must choose the option
    Export bookmarks to HTML.
    If you choose the option Backup in step 3 your bookmarks will be saved with a file format that has the file extension JSON. The problem with the JSON format is that when you come to restore your bookmarks all your subsequent bookmarks will be overwritten.
