How do I display the bookmarks which start with the letters N-Z

Posted

I have imported my bookmarks from Internet Explore. The only ones that show up in Firefox are the ones which start with the letters A-M, and a few N's. How do I get the rest to show up?

Is the problem is that Firefox didn't successfully import all your IE Favorites — they are not visible in the Library dialog (Ctrl+Shift+b) — you can use the two step process of exporting from IE to a file and then importing that file.

This will duplicate everything you have already, so you might want to clear out the bookmarks that were automatically imported before doing the second import.

Here are the steps for that if needed:

Any luck?

Hello,

If you press Ctrl+B or go to Bookmarks, Show all Favorites, you will see all your bookmarks.

That worked jscher2000, thank you very much. I couldn't figure out how to remove the previously imported bookmarks, so I just left them. But I can now see ALL of my bookmarks, and that all that really matters. again, thank you very much.
