how to import bookmarks? How to get the bookmarks bar? How to organize bookmarks? Thank you

Posted

I got my first android device,a yoga tab pro2 and find that firefox exists but seems to have none of the basic features of the desktop version. There seems to be no way to import bookmarks I have in an html file on dropbox and memory stick,no way of organizing bookmarks into folders, no way of getting to your bookmarks quickly like the bookmarks bar I had when I used the old laptop where all folders where always visible and simply droped down. Bookmarks are essential and the most basic requirement of all and they seem to be non existent in the mobile version. I have about 700 Bookmarks all organized and sync is not an option since the tablet is my only device now.

Firefox for Android does not have the same features as desktop Firefox. There is no bookmarks toolbar or a way to import bookmarks from a file.

Thank you for your answer. That means that it is useless. If the basic funktions of a browser are not available, why call it firefox?

I want to import my bookmarks from file for privacy reasons because I do *not* want to sync them. See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1095431
