Convert FF backup bookmarks from .json to something else?
I have a case with a couple of backup files from Firefox bookmarks (bookmarks-yyyy-mm-dd.json).
There are 1500 or so bookmarks in each backup file. It would be a pain to carve every bookmark in each backup file by hand and convert the timestamps. I would like to convert the backup files in something more readable format to present for an investigator.
I have googled, searched Forensicfocus and Forensic Wiki.
The only way I have found is to use Firefoxanalysis (trial version).
At the moment money is hard to get and I wonder if there is a free alternative?
a quick and dirty solution is to load the file into notepad++ and do a search and replace on the term
and replace it with
(making sure the search mode is set to extended)
this will put a new line at the start of each bookmark and make things a lot more readable.
the JSON format is hierachical but pretty simple ( http//www.json.org )
I could probably knock together a little python script together at home for this if that'd be of any use?
