Cannot import bookmarks from Safari because "import" option is NOT highlighted (not available). Why?
MacBook Pro - FireFox 4
I was able in the past (earlier FireFox versions) to import bookmarks from Safari when clicking on the "Organize Bookmarks." This now is not available. Instead, under "file" there is an "import" option but it is NOT highlighted, i.e., it is not available for clicking. How do you import bookmarks from Safari (or any other browser) after you have used FireFox for a while. i.e., not when you first set it up, but later?

"Organize Bookmarks" has been renamed to "Show All Bookmarks" in the bookmarks menu.
The option to import can be disabled if you are in private browsing mode. To stop Firefox opening in private browsing mode do this:
- Open the Preferences window and go to the Privacy panel
- Change the setting "Firefox will" to "Remember history", alternatively if you set it to "Use custom settings for history", de-select the setting "Permanent Private Browsing mode"
Thank you TonyE. I tried your solution and it worked! Thanks agin and sorry for the delay in replying!
