can I import bookmarks from Firefox into Iceweasel, as I went from Linux Mint to Knoppix which uses Iceweasel.

Posted

Hi there, I've been playing around with different Linux O.S'es, and every one that I tried used Firefox, and I was therefore able to save my bookmarks and thus put them in my new installation. My latest O.s. is Knoppix 6.2, and it's default browser is Iceweasel. What I would like to know is if I can put my Firefox bookmarks into Iceweasel. The way I used to do this was to first view hidden files, and copy the Mozilla folder to an external drive, install the O.S. view the hidden files and copy and paste the old folder, thereby having all my bookmarks, passwords etc. available. Look forward to your reply, embra55
