How do I export bookmarks from Firefox 5 (to Google Chrome)? There's no 'Organize Bookmarks' option under the 'Bookmarks' tab.

Posted

I'm running Firefox 5 with no other issues, on a Windows 7 32-bit laptop. I want to copy my favorites to my work laptop that uses Chrome, but I just can't find the 'export' command in 5!

Chosen solution

Show All Bookmarks replaces Organize Bookmarks and has same keyboard shortcut ("Ctrl+Shift+B")

then "Import and Backup" then "Export HTML"

I knew I had to be missing something obvious! They really need to update the Help file with that little tidbit. Thank you!

What they need to do is stop messing about with things. I 'Show all bookmarks' a more obvious command than 'Organize bookmarks'? No. So why do it then?

I am seriously going off Firefox.

I agree with DavidC111

I assumed that "show all bookmarks" would open them all in tabs.

It is about time that Fire Fox sorted themselves out. If you can do it with other browsers then why not FF??

For how much longer are we to endure this?
