No export in Bookmarks toolbar on !.8 for mac

Posted

Running OSX 10.6.8. Firefox 1.8 for Yahoo 22.0. Want to export bookmarks to Safari. Go to bookmarks tab and click on "show all bookmarks" then to "bookmarks toolbar". No export bookmark available. Thanks

You need to look at the toolbar in the Library with the back and forward arrows and three other buttons (Organize, Views, Import and Backup) and not in the two panes that show the folders and bookmarks.

You can install the regular Firefox 22 release from the Mozilla server to get the official release instead of using some third-party build that might come with some undesired 'extras'.

You can find the Export menu entry in the Bookmarks Manager (Library)

"Import & Backup" is the third (star like) button on the toolbar in the Library.

guess I am just dense.

When I go to the Bookmarks>Show All Bookmarks> I have Bookmarks Toolbar (it's not in there - only "recently visited"), Bookmarks Menu and Unsorted Bookmarks. Those are my only options. Cant find "Import and Backup anywhere.

Question owner

BTW, this is the Yahoo edition 22 - whatever that means. And thank you for helping me.

Thank you so much. I had to look up! I will download the other version. Been having problems with the computer heating up during video playback.
