Firefox 3 bookmarks

Post by blackketter » Wed Dec 17, 2008 8:48 pm

I've read the LaunchBar 5 release notes, but when I try to add Firefox bookmarks, it prompts me for a file. Should I be choosing the SQLite db file? If so, where is it?

Or am missing something obvious?

(BTW: Thanks for the continued great work on LaunchBar, it makes my life better.)

Did you quit Firefox first? It took me a couple tries, but it did work when I quit Firefox, deleted my existing Firefox index entry, added it again, and hit Refresh.

I received the following from Norbert:

It's located at

~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[some-profile-code].default/places.sqlite

and LaunchBar should be able to pick that location automatically. Don't know why it doesn't in your case.

Best Regards, Norbert


Problem solved! Thx.

Quitting works

Yes, quitting both FireFox and LaunchBar as mentioned above seems to be the key. I had tried several times without quitting either with no success. Now it's working like a charm.
