Bookmark differences between firefox on mac and windows. Help needed.

Posted

Hey,

So I start using windows again as well as a mac. I exported my bookmarks from my mac to the pc and all is fine but I have 2 questions..

1: On mac when I select bookmark then bookmark this page, I get a window that allows me to select my folder.. How does one do this on Windows instead of just simply bookmarking and having to do it later.

2: Is there a way to export tags with the bookmarks?


Thanks !

2 If you "show all bookmarks" there is a drop-down menu to export your bookmarks (and import) When exporting from mac / firefox the tags were (probably) not saved. You can read this: A question from 2009
