Cannot import bookmarks from Safari on a Mac because "import" under the file menu is grayed out.

Posted

To import bookmarks from Safari on a Mac following the instructions for the import wizard, I am to select "import" under the Firefox file menu, but "import" is grayed out, so I cannot select it.
