How do I import bookmarks from another browser

Posted

The instructions for importing Bookmarks from Internet Explorer work fine - except - after repeated tries, it only imports a small portion of my bookmarks. I have them organized in file folders and it stops in the C's each time I have tried. What am I doing wrong?

One thing you can try is to go to one browser, save the bookmarks as HTML. You should then be able to add the HTML file without losing your current bookmarks. Remember to back up everything first ... J I C.
