I had Linux Mint 16 KDE installed alongside Xubuntu 13.10. I messed up partitions and had to reinstall Mint and both the OSs were booting fine after reinstallation. Now as expected all of my Firefox bookmarks were erased. Is there any way to recover those Firefox bookmarks?
Do you have your
.mozilla directory from your old installations home directory? If yes, just copy that directory to your new home and change its ownership by a command like this:
~$ chown -R USER:root ~/.mozilla
And after this you will have all of your old Firefox configuration and also your old bookmarks.
