Re: [FireFox] Firefox Exporting/Importing Bookmarks?
It may not be the cleanest way, but it would work.
First, make a backup of your existing Firefox profile, by saving the full contents of the folder located at
xxx = your windows profile name, and "yourprofilename" is the name of the directory that contains your firefox profile.
Take everything in that folder and store it in another folder (new folder on your desktop for example).
Then, delete the following folder
Now, run Firefox.
When you do, you will see the screen I posted above (#1). Keep the defaults, so it will import things from IE.
It will import everything you see on the 2nd screen, but most important is your favorites (bookmarks). The process should only take a few seconds, depending on how many favorites you may have.
Once its done, load Firefox. Yes, everything will be different, but that's OK.
Go export your bookmarks using the export option from the bookmark library, and then close Firefox.
Now, go delete the contents of the new profile that was created (it will be same location as your old one was, just with a different directory name. Again, just delete the contents inside of that directory.
Copy the contents of your backup that you made into that empty directory.
Launch Firefox again, and all your settings, configurations, cookies, and so on will now be back the way you had them.
Finally, import your bookmarks in.
Again, its a lot of steps, but it is the only way I know of to cause that screen to run and import things over.
The backup is done so that you don't move over the rest of the items, as all you care about at this point is your favorites.
Hope that helps.
