Where is the Bookmarks location on the Mac?

  • Hi!
    I just built in a new SSD on my iMac and the migration from Time Machine is not working. So i have to get all the files manually to the new drive.

    What i am looking for is: where can i get my old bookmarks back from the folder system? I am running the newest version of Opera (38.0.2220.31) and already imported 2 items form HD>username>library>preferences. The folder Opera Preferences (including a file called bookmarks) and the file "com.operasoftware.Opera.plist" but still, when i open Opera, i have no bookmarks inside ... 😞

    Did i miss anything?

    Many thanks for your help!!

  • Copy/Overwrite the entire folder (browser profile):
    /Users/YOUR-USERNAME/Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.Opera

    short path (tilde at the beginning): ~/Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.Opera

    important:
    ~/Library folder is hidden by default in the Finder
