Firefox/Linux import bookmarks from Firefox/Windows?

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Marek Williams, Jun 11, 2005.

  1. I have a new Linux laptop. Naturally, I installed Firefox first thing.
    I also have Firefox on my Windows 2000 computer, where I have been
    using it for a couple months. I have a few dozen bookmarks on the
    Windows version. Is there a way to import them into Firefox on the
    Linux computer? (Network is up.)

    Have you tried "Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > File > Export" from
    Win2k, and "Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > File > Import" from Linux?
    Or, copy the exported "bookmarks.html" file or the "bookmarks.html"
    file located in your Win2k profile to Linux, then either import via
    Firefox or copy to your profile.
