    Am I missing something here? did you install the 64 bit version before you uninstalled the 32 bit? Otherwise, how would Firefox know to save everything? Thanks

    The "Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\Installation number-default profile sub folder\bookmarkbackups" sub folder as well as for the FF variants find thing located under "C:\users\account name\AppData\Roaming". You will also note the MS, Opera, Skype as well as some other browser folders may also be found there as well as since Roaming covers the web while Local and Low cover local apps on the drive.

    When trying out some other open source type browser like Cyberfox or Pale Moon for example you simply open up the Allbookmarks menu option choosing the import/export option to import, highlighting the bookmarks bar item, and then browse to the FF sub folder there to see everything imported. The bookmarks when then be extracted to the new browser's own bookmarks bar. At first you will run into the prompt for importing IE Favorites, bookmarks, and feeds option you can either click on or skip. On 10 most won't even have IE enabled unless they have need for it since it isn't by default with Edge now the focus.

    Waterfox has some issues with extensions that FF doesn't have,.

    I don't face any issues, but I don't use much extensions. Good to know 64 bit FF is out.

    I just use waterfox as my only browser.
    EDIT: Installed Pale Moon. Looks pale to begin with. What's the advantage over WF/FF?
    EDIT: Pale Moon has constant 7-8% CPU usage when idle, higher compared to WF.

    However WF takes 200+ mbs of disk space as compared to 60 mbs approx of PM.

    I never used Waterfox. This is one comparison between Pale Moon and Firefox. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/firefo...e-moon-browser
