Just a newbie - but I think this is a very useful suggestion. Wouldn't a wiki be a good platform to organize and host these tips ?

In SeaMonkey, using Bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks -> Tools -> Export you can make a file of all your bookmarks, which file can then be imported (via the same route) back into SeaMonkey (or, I think, Firefox and maybe other browsers.)

Well, this is an ancient thread but temporarily I thought I'd add this weird tip (from another thread) here since I haven't arranged access to the wiki and the old tips and tricks thread from the wiki is no longer there anyway!

trying to resolve the Firefox caching>savefile issue via drag/drop/symlink back has not been sucessful, as Firefox always annoyingly re-creates the entire ~/.Mozilla paths apon the next boot

Actually I found a solution to that problem, which I've used in many varieties of Puppy. Immediately after you do the drag/drop/symlink back step use the puppy menu to reboot (restart) the system (not shutdown). I do mean immediately... if you wait and shutdown and then restart, as you say Firefox recreates the entire ~/.mozilla paths. But if you restart immediately as I say, for some weird reason the symlink stays as desired...

The "losing symlink" behaviour seems to be a bug in Puppy, which could do with being tracked down and fixed in case it causes any other problems.
