Howto transfer SOME bookmarks from one Profile to another?

I know I can copy the ENTIRE bookmarks folder from one Profile and use that to REPLACE the bookmarks folder in another Profile. Not what I want.

All I want are some of the bookmarks. Can I create a file with just them, and then Import them (without wiping out the existing bookmarks file)?

Maybe there is a way to Synch just the bookmarks folder between two drives?

Either way, the hassle is that one drive will be hooked up as an external and under OSX the Profile folder won't be accessible to the User who is logged in. So I would need to startup with the external drive, drop a copy of the bookmarks folder into the Shared folder, then restart and login with the internal drive...

I followed the directions exactly for importing bookmarks from Chrome, but only a few made it over. How do I get all my Chrome bookmarks over to Firefox?

My bookmarks in Chrome, which I had organized into several folders, did not make it over to Firefox. I have no idea how I'm going to be able to continue to use Firefox without my bookmarks. This problem, along with the one I posted earlier about Firefox not opening my previous tabs has crippled me. I'm ready to go back to Chrome. Is there anyway to get these bookmarks imported correctly? Thanks.

How to get bookmarks out of the bookmarks toolbar?

Hi Guys,

I migrated my bookmarks over from one Firefox browser to a new machine. I have all the bookmarks saved in a Bookmarks toolbar folder and they are all there but I cannot figure out how to get them all out of the toolbar folder and on the bar individually?

At present they are in the folder on the toolbar space of the main browser. Previously I had a number of bookmarks showing across the browser and then the rest were listed below on the far right when you hover over it.

I would like to have it in that format again but cannot see how to do it! When I right click I get these options:

Open all in tabs New Bookmark New folder New separator Cut Copy Delete Sort by name Properties

I cannot see which would drag them all out nor can I use left click (showing them all) then right to drag them all out!

Hopefully someone can help sort this thanks.

I'm on Ubuntu 18.04, running Firefox 64.

I've tried importing directly through the wizard from chrome, and from chromium. I've tried importing through an html file (the html file itself is fine). Just literally nothing happens. I've tried running FF from console to see if there were any error messages, nope nothing.

Does this just not feature just not work at all?
