Get bookmarks from previous versions of firefox or chrome

Posted

In the past I have been able to download bookmarks from previous versions of Firefox. I just downloaded Firefox on a new computer and I can download IE or Chrome bookmarks but not previous Firefox bookmarks. Any solutions?

Hi, if you want to copy bookmarks from another computer, you can try using Sync: How do I set up Sync on my computer?.

Or, plug a USB flash drive into your old machine, then in Firefox, open bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Export Bookmarks to HTML. Or > Backup, but note that Backup will overwrite any existing bookmarks when you restore them. Now save to the flash drive.

You can now plug the flash drive into your new machine and in Firefox, open bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Import Bookmarks from HTML. Or > Restore (from Backup), and navigate to the flash drive. More: Import Bookmarks and personal data from another browser.

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you!
