Each time I start Friefox I am asked to import bookmatks everytime

Using Mac OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion) Firefox 17.01.

Each time it asked to to import bookmarks - I have done this numerous times - nothing gets imported (Safari).

Currently using Chrome because of this.

Try to repair the disk permissions:


In Mac OS X v10.7 and later, the $HOME/Library folder is a hidden folder.

Open Finder and use one of these:

  • Go > Go To Folder (Shift-Command-G) and in the dialog type: ~/Library
  • Open the "Go" menu and hold down the Option key to make the Library appear
