Trying to bring bookmarks from Safari to Firefox, I've carefully followed the instructions provided by folks in this forum with no success.

Using "Import data from another browser" I get "From Safari" folders but they turn up empty; see screenshot. Using "Import bookmarks from HTML" and selecting the bookmark file I exported from Safari, I get an "Export Complete" message but nothing shows up in Firefox. Not even empty folders.

I've tried repeatedly. Quit browsers, rebooted, opened browsers, nothing works.

(sorry if this is a duplicate question; I put it in the wrong place earlier)

Help?

at All Bookmarks, Firefox lists "Imported x/x/14 and Safari imported x/x/15. Under the "Toolbar category, it lists 2 separate "from Safari", and the second one is correct. I need to get rid of the old bookmarks, default to the latest. How the heck do i do that? Help just doesn't seem to cover it, none of the articles i can find cover it, and if i try to edit, i have to delete one at a time, with no hope that will get me the latest (5/14/19) up as the default, especially the toolbar. I do NOT want to have to do it one at a time to change from 2015 to now! I can't upload the screenshots, Firefox saays too big and doesn't give an option to reduce.

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?

Hey, got some trouble while attempting to transfer my data from Chrome to Firefox.

I can import bookmarks via the HTML file but I wanna import everything else other than bookmarks too.

When I check the "Import Settings and Data" tab to import from another browser, Chrome isn't even on the list to import from, is this not supported anymore? Is there anything I can do?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I'ld like to imgrate from Chrome to Firefox. There is option to import my data, bookmarks etc. and it works fine, but only for my first Chrome profile. I have two profiles on Chrome, one for work, one personal and would like to import only personal data. Unfortunately, Firefox always import data from work profile, and there is also no option to select profile.

I tried to delete work profile and migrate then, but in this case, Firefox doesn't see my Chrome instance.

Basically title. I have the Old Firefox Data folder, but when I try to copy it into my appdata (both local AND roaming) nothing happens. My Old Firefox Data folder has another folder inside it containing all the data named g4xfs73z.default, which I haven't seen reference to on any forum. This name also does not match the name of my current profile folder. If I copy this folder in, nothing happens. If I copy the contents of this folder in, nothing happens. Any ideas?

Hi, I use Firefox 62.0 on Ubuntu and I would like to know how to backup my saved passwords without use Firefox Sync and without copy the entire profile folder. I'll explain: considering that for some generic problems the profile could be corrupted in the future, I would like to backup only my password without to be force to use Firefox Sync and uploading my passwords on cloud (with all the consequences on security and privacy) Is there any way to do this? Many thanks
