How do I transfer my Firefox Bookmarks to my workstation?

  • On your laptop or home machine, in Firefox, go to Bookmarks->Organize Bookmarks. Then click on the Import/Export Button (Mac), Import and Backup Button (Windows/Linux) and select Export HTML. Save the file.
  • Transfer that file to your office computer via e-mail, ssh, usb key, etc.

Why isn't my Firefox or Mozilla starting up?

Sometimes the Firefox/Mozilla process gets hung up and needs to be restarted.
To do this, at a terminal prompt, type:

pkill -u your_username firefox

or

pkill -u your_username mozilla

Substitute your_username with your username. You can verify that the process is no longer running, by typing:

pgrep -u your_username firefox

or

pgrep -u your_username mozilla

Then try running Firefox again.
If this still doesn't work, then type:
 

pkill -9 -u your_username firefox.

or
