How to import /export bookmarks in Firefox for Mac

Posted

I wanted to export my bookmarks in Firefox for Mac, in htm or pdf format. Cant find any command for that. Nor any import from htm or pdf. Nor can I list all my bookmarks aplhabetically  ; I have lots of bookmarks in different folders and I want to see all these bookmarks listed with no folders.

In Firefox for OS X, you can export your Bookmarks to HTML via the Bookmarks dialouge window.

Open your Bookmarks dialouge via the Menu bar: Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks.

When the new window has opened, this is what you can do to export your Bookmarks: https://support.mozilla.org/media/uploads/images/2012-09-16-05-44-02-10bc19.png (or view the image attachment).

Please look at this article which explains the process in detail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/export-firefox-bookmarks-to-backup-or-transfer

I also run version 15.0.1 under OS X, same as you do, and I can do it.

OK, I found it. No wonder I had prolems finding it since it is not a user friendly (or intuitive) place to find that. And still, listing the bookmarks alphabetically or sorting by the folder are still not possible ?
