In Firefox Bookmarks Menu, no "ORGANIZE BOOKMARKS" populates

Posted

Greetings all,

On my Macbook, I have Firefox and all of my bookmarks are contained within. I am attempting to export my bookmarks from Firefox, and then import them into my Safari browser. I have read just about every Firefox tutorial, and am still hitting a dead end. If I follow the Firefox tutorial, I am led to believe that clicking within the Firefox bar at the top of my computer, on "Bookmarks" (which is just to the right of "History"), I will see a drop down menu, and then I will be able to scroll down to "Organize Bookmarks" When I click on "Bookmarks", indeed there is a drop down menu....but unlike the tutorial, where you can plainly see "Organize Bookmarks", this does not appear for me. I am so stumped, and so frustrated. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all, so much Jeff

Wow, you did good! Thank you for the heads up. I was able to import my bookmarks into Safari within a minute. I'm pretty thrilled, but I have one final hurdle. Don't know if there is a fix or not. On Firefox, I had "Yahoo" as my home page, whenever Firefox would open...I was also able to have all of my bookmarks appear on the left side, within my Yahoo homepage, whenever I would open the Firefox browser. To do that, within Firefox, I simply went up to Bookmarks, and clicked where it said "show in sidebar". I can't seem to do this in Safari. I'm pleased that I now can visit my bookmarks when in Safari, but it would sure be great to have them immediately at the ready when opening Safari. Thanks again for helping out, Jeff

On Windows at least, Safari doesn't seem to have a Sidebar for Bookmarks and History.
