Hello. I need major help. This past weekend, I had to wipe the HD on my Macbook Pro. I did have Time Machine backups at the time. Is there any way to retrieve my old Firefox and Chrome bookmarks from Time Machine? Please help. I'm trying to recover more than two years of work. Please help! :)

Chrome's bookmarks are located at ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Bookmarks (the ~ is shorthand for your home directory) and Firefox's can be found by following the instructions here.

If you need help getting to the Library folder, follow the instructions in the linked document above (the one for the Firefox bookmarks).
