Import Bookmarks from Firefox

Postby mrmick » Sat Jun 25, 2011 6:47 am

This is the 2nd time I've tried to post this. I hope it works this time. I have an Imac w/OS 10.6.5(Snow Leopard) and I'm trying to Import my Bookmarks from FireFox but nothing is happening when I hit import. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well All I finally got it to work. For some reason it wouldn't recognize FireFox but would Safari so I got my Bookmarks via Safari.

Sorry for the delay.
The computer had already imported some bookmarks from Firefox into Safari. So I just accepted those. It's not an ideal solution but I decided not to try and get the rest from Firefox. Hope this helps.

The easiest way is to export your bookmarks from firefox to a file...
This can be done with the bookmark manager within firefox...
Just use the 'Export Bookmarks to HTML' selection...

Then in iron, open bookmark manager and click on Organize...
At the bottom of the drop down menu you will find 'Import Bookmarks from HTML file...'
Click on this and navigate to the previously saved firefox bookmark file (You did note where you saved it, correct?)
iron does the rest for you...

The same can be done for most of the other browsers...
Just export the bookmarks from one browser, then import into the browser you will be using...

You will probably need to do some organizing, so I will leave you to it...
