Can't import html bokmarks, wrong instructions.

Posted

The help instructions for importing html bookmarks files do not match your pull down menu. There is no way to complete the import process. The screen shot below shows the window I get when clicking on "Bookmarks".

Hello Ronasara,

When you click on "Show All Bookmarks" at the bottom of that dropdown, it will take you to the Library. In the upper left corner you will see three icons - on Mac it doesn't say what those icons stand for, but when you click on the up and down arrows it will open "Import and Backup", where you will see "Import/Export Bookmarks from HTML ...".

(the cogwheel icon stands for "Organize", and the icon in the middle stands for "Views")

Hi Ronasara, on the bottom of that drop-down menu, click "Show All Bookmarks". Firefox should launch a separate window titled Library.

The Library window has its own toolbar with 3 different drop-down menus. The third menu should have Import, Export, Backup, and Restore. Can you find it there?
