    Question Favorites/Bookmarks Folder in Safari Question.
    Does anyone know where the Faorites/Bookmarks folder is for Safari on the Hard Drive? I did a search on my Hard Drive but couldn't find it. In the help menu its not located where it says it is.... Unless I'm blind neye:

    Thanks. I'd like to find it so I can back it up before I install Tiger.

    Tried the Safari folder in Library? There's a Bookmark.plist file and others but I dunno whether that's it. There is a utility you can download somewhere for Safari that will back up your bookmarks for you called Safari Bookmarks Extractor or something.

    The bookmarks in Safari are stored in that Bookmark.plist file. I back that up and if I do a new install, I put the Bookmark.plist in and all my bookmarks show up.

    Thanks for the tip... I'm going to have to give that a try the next time.
