The import option is greyed out, how do i imort my bookmarks from Safari

I've had FF on my computer for awhile, just recently I d/l'ed FF4. I would like to import my Safari bookmarks. However the "import" option, under the file menu is greyed out. How can I import my bookmarks.

This can happen if you run Firefox in (permanent) Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history mode.

  • You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History"
  • To see all History and Cookie settings, choose: Firefox > Preferences > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
  • Uncheck: [ ] "Automatically start Firefox in a private browsing session"

Thank you very much. While I'm very happy with Safari, I would like to explore Fire Fox, and the lack of the ability to import my bookmarks was very confusing. Thanks again for your help.
