Previously, we have seen how to save/restore your bookmarks in Firefox 3. But why not ask the browser to automate such a process? Thus, there is no need to handle this tedious process, since a simple configuration change makes it possible to do so transparently!
This tip allows you to automatically export your favorites to HTML format to a named file bookmarks.html which will be kept in the folder of your Firefox profile.

Simple but effective, right?
