Google Bookmark Sync is not the best bookmark manager out there, i had a lot of problems with it,

especially if i was logged on in more than one computer at the same time.

try Foxmarks, i found out about that from the Lifehacker blog and its been excellent. sync time is fast and automatic, and i can use multiple computers and make bookmark changes at the same time without hiccups.

Thanks Ayush for the Foxmarks suggestion. I'd read about it on the discussion forums, and was going to check it out.

But first need to find a back-up copy of all my old bookmarks.

Thanks again.

Del.icio.us also has a firefox plugin that provides seamless access to your delicious bookmarks across computers, in addition to its social bookmarking magic, and makes it easy to generate an xml export/backup.

Hi Michael,

I'm sorry to hear about your experience with GBS. I wanted to let you know there is a way to get your old bookmarks back, though.

Firefox itself backs up the bookmarks periodically. You can find them in your profile folder:

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder

Inside that folder you will find a folder called "bookmarkbackups".

You should be able to close Firefox, copy an old version of the bookmarks back over bookmarks.html and restart.
