How do I find my bookmarks

Posted

I'm pretty new to Android. I have a tablet. I just installed Firefox on my PC this morning. Now I installed it on my tablet. I have saved a few bookmarks but don't see how to find them. I'm sure it's easy. This is how inexperienced I am with Firefox. I have been using the "browser" from the playstore (Android?). Can I transfer those bookmarks like I did from IE on my desktop PC? I want to sync the tablet with my pc. I've read about it and don't think I'll have a problem but you never know. Does that mean I'll have the same bookmarks on the pc and the tablet? That would really be nice. Is there a "Firefox for Dummy's" web site? hah Thank you Jack

Thank you. When I got the tablet I was hoping for more than I have (or have the knowledge to use). Since this morning when I installed Firefox on the pc I've gotten hopeful about using them easier. Finding a site and bookmarking it on the tablet then needing to manually do the same thing on the pc is a pain. If I can save a site and have it automatically saved on the other device that would be great. Will this work both ways? Save on pc and it automatically be on the tablet AND save site on the tablet and it automatically be on the pc? I hope so.

I have found out how to find the sites I have bookmarked. I tap the address field and have three tabs available, one of which is bookmarks. However they are just listed in the order I saved them I think. I need to creat folders and sub folders for them. I'm sure this is possible and is my next hurdle.  :) Also, I need to have more than one site open at the same time of course. I have seen them listed a time or two but haven't been able to get a good grasp on managing them like I do with the "browser" that I am used to.
