Restore bookmarks from my iPad to Firefox

Posted

My computer crashed and I had to reinstall Windows 7. I have all my bookmarks on my iPad3 in the Firefox app. I don't remember how I got them there, but they're all there. I did import some from Internet Explorer, but since I rarely use it, most of my bookmarks were not there.

Is there a way to import the bookmarks from my iPad back to my computer?

No, the iPad app (which is discontinued) was 1 way, so you can't go from the iPad to your Computer.

There are a LOT of unhappy people out here with mobile devices that Firefox refuses to develop a browser for. We are being deprived of the best browser in existance! C'mon Firefox devdlopers! Think of the vast market of iPhones, iPads, iPods you could have your FF browser on! Please!

Lemongelo, you are talking about something totally different. Firefox can't run on iOS because Apple won't allow us to be on the iTunes Store, believe me if we could we would.
