Backing up and compatibility of personal config files
I recently bought a new hard drive and wanted a clean install for it, so I partitioned, copied my old home directory to the partition where it would be stored from now.
However, despite how I assumed the contrary, none of hidden files had transferred, now I've solved this but I have another problem.
Like most people, I have a set of bookmarks and due to my primary browser being Firefox they're all in Firefox, however, when I run any other browser (i.e. Lynx, Konquerer) these bookmarks are not carried over which I can understand why. What I am looking for though is a method or application which will enable me to have compatibility amongst my favourite browsers in terms of my bookmarks, any ideas?
Thanks in Advance

you could try (when firefox is open)
bookmarks ->manage bookmarks from there click on file->export & export them to a file
then import them in your browser of choice

You might look at this application.
Or you could just export your bookmarks to your desktop and access them from there.
