I can't import Seamonkey bookmarks because the only option shown on the "Import" screen in Firefox is for Internet Explorer.

On my XP computer the "import" option screen shows both IE and Netscape/Mozilla as choices; on this Windows 7 machine the only option is IE. Re-start doesn't help, and the installation of Firefox went smoothly.

Re: I can't import Seamonkey bookmarks because the only option shown on the "Import" screen in Firefox is for Internet Explorer.

You can export the bookmarks in SeaMonkey to an HTML file and import that file in Firefox.

Which SeaMonkey version are you referring to?


  • Export the favorites in SeaMonkey to an HTML file (bookmarks.html):
 Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > Tools > Export
  • Import the HTML file in Firefox:
 Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks > Import & Backup > Import HTML: From File
