For Ubuntu 12.04 using Firefox 21.0,
say I have a local .html file,
test.html, in my home directory, which I want to add to the bookmarks menu..
- First I use "Open File" and then choose the file from file selection dialog,
- Then I press CTRL+D to save the bookmark
- Then I move to the bookmarks side bar, and right click on the bookmark, and choose "Properties"
- From the dialog I can see that the location of the file is "file:///home/fcihh/test.html" where "/home/fcihh/" is my home directory.
The problem is that it uses an absolute path to the home directory. My case, is that I have two machines that share the same bookmarks, but the absolute path to the home directory is different for each machine. Therefore, I would like to use a relative path to the file such that the bookmark can be used on either machine..
I have tried replacing "/home/fcihh" with a tilde "~" but that does not work.. (The tilde seems to be removed automatically when I save the change..)
