I would have just upgraded but everything fell apart during the process. I think I saved everything off the drive. Now I'm trying to put it back together with 12. Where can I find my bookmarks in 10.04, and where do I put them in 12.04?

depending what your browser was and what your browser is now – eephyne Jan 15 '13 at 7:02
Was and still is firefox – hortstu Jan 15 '13 at 7:10

They should be here: .mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/.

This xxxxx stuff is a random string of 8 characters.

If you don't see ".mozilla" folder in your old home folder you have to make nautilus to show you also hidden folders:

When this happen , i generally look for the config directory of firefox in the old home folder and copy it to the new , it usually is .mozilla/firefox.

1)backup your current .mozilla/firefox directory

2) erase you current .mozilla/firefox

3) copy the old one to the current one

4) test it via firefox

They're are other ways to do it but i found it the most easy one
