When I read message boards (Reddit), the posts that I have already clicked on turn purple. Later I can come back and see at a glance which posts I have read and which ones are new to me.
I am used to using Chrome for this, but lately I have been experimenting with Firefox. When I went back to the message boards using Chrome I noticed that the previously clicked on posts were not purple (because I had viewed them in Firefox).
No worries! In Chrome I can click on the wrench, options, personal stuff, import data from another browser. I just choose Firefox from the drop down menu and instantly my click-on history is caught up.
Firefox on the other hand does not seem to have this feature. When I click on "file" in the menu and import it only gives me the option to import from Internet Explorer.
To be clear - I do not care about importing/exporting bookmarks. I already have the same bookmarks on Chrome and Firefox. I do look at several message boards and it is a big inconvenience for me to have to click on links that I have already seen, just to turn them purple, so I will be able to more easily recognize the links that I haven't clicked on yet.
Even though I would like to start using Firefox more, I find that I am "forced" to return to Chrome because it is so much easier to read message boards that remember what I have clicked on.
