Hi Guys

I am a fan of Firefox (as I am sure many of us are)

But I have always had issues with the Bookmarks especially backing up etc.

I the current version, if you go to Import & Export there are two options
Backup and Export

Which is the best option to use ?

I always have problems when trying to re-load my Bookmarks on a new machine.

This is why I love the Xmarks add on.

I was using Xmarks but disabled it since it is stopping soon and went to FF sync addon to see what it was like. Didn't uninstall Xmarks just encase but now find FF sync is as good for me. Backup I guess just saves a copy where as export probably lets you choose the program your exporting too I would hope

I was a fan of Xmarks and changed to FFSync also;
Had some issues so changed back to Xmarks as it is now "under new management"
and will continue.
Xmarks is the best thing since bread was invented.

Yes it looks like Xmarks is going to carry on, but they may charge for some premium features.

@Kjaada
As you say its one of the best things since sliced bread was invented.

Amen to that.
