I have this problem too, and the-edmeister seems to have answered, but I can't see how to see his answer.

Click on the Bookmarks tab and then click on Show All Bookmarks.

Show All Bookmarks is the answer.

Show all bookmarks is NOT the answer. It is only part of the answer.

Sure, show all is nice....I found that too. But there doesn't appear to be (to my casual eye) a way to import/export anyplace in here. This is the 4.0 FF included in the ubuntu 11 beta, btw.

I was answering hjgreenberg when I said it was the answer.

I don't know what the Library window looks like in Firefox 4.0 versions for Linux, I haven't upgraded to 4.0 on my netbook yet, but Import & Backup should still be at the top of that window.

"Show All Bookmarks" sounds great. Too bad it doesn't do anything! I'm using Firefox 4.0 beta for Mac and I have NO WAY of getting to the bookmarks menu - complete fail. Nothing. Nada. Nil. Nul. Not even an error message. Just nothing happens. For now I'm copying and pasting the bookmarks I need but this is one of probably 3 or 4 major bugs in this release. Not ready for prime time, I'm afraid.

You shouldn't be using a Beta any longer. Firefox was released almost a month ago.

Thank you.

Obviously the current documentation still refers to "Organise Bookmarks" and should be rectified. This is consistent across FF4 on XP, W7 and W2K8

To provide the complete answer (at least on the Mac version of Firefox 4.0), go to Show All Bookmarks. When the window opens, there is a drop-down menu reached from the third button to the right of the forward/back buttons that gives you the option to Export HTML . . .

I'm facing exactly the same problem with you! I struggled 2 evenings without success. Could someone please help???

Finally!...here's the answer...(at least in Linux or Ubuntu). Follow this all-the-way-through. From the File Menu, go to the Bookmarks tab and then to Show All Bookmarks. When the new window opens, (believe it or not) there is a new File Menu tab option that becomes available at the top of the page. Low and behold from this file menu we can see "import and backup" as the new tab heading. If this doesn't work for you, then try this: Go to the Bookmarks tab and then to Show All Bookmarks. When the new window opens, look to the left column and hover-over "All Bookmarks" and right-click (or your equivalence) and choose "copy" from the right-click menu. Then paste into your favorite HTML editor!
