at All Bookmarks, Firefox lists "Imported x/x/14 and Safari imported x/x/15. Under the "Toolbar category, it lists 2 separate "from Safari", and the second one is correct. I need to get rid of the old bookmarks, default to the latest. How the heck do i do that? Help just doesn't seem to cover it, none of the articles i can find cover it, and if i try to edit, i have to delete one at a time, with no hope that will get me the latest (5/14/19) up as the default, especially the toolbar. I do NOT want to have to do it one at a time to change from 2015 to now! I can't upload the screenshots, Firefox saays too big and doesn't give an option to reduce.

How did you export from safari, and how are you importing them?

These instructions are for Firefox. Other browsers should also be able to do this.

These instructions will combine the new bookmarks with the old.

Open the Bookmarks Manager; Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the toolbar, and select Bookmarks. Hot key is <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> B.

Once the window is open, at the top of the page, press the button labeled Import and Backup. Select Export Bookmarks To HTML, and follow the prompts and save it to a HTML file. Copy the file to another computer/profile. Repeat the instructions above, BUT select Import Bookmarks From HTML.

The slightest error in typing and what i type here disappears. This is the 3rd attempt. I print all the Help" items and your answer, as it is beyond my 73-year-old mind to memorize it and get it right. I read "help" in both browsers, searched the toolbar menus, except almost nothing in Firefox. In FF help, i got to "Import bookmarks from another browser". As soon as i finish this sentence, I'm going to try "Import Bookmakrs from and HTML file" I exported my Bookmarks from Safari, and the file appeared on the Safari desktop labeled "Safari Bookmarks html". That's the 2015 toolbar, i think, but even then i think i had more than 4 on the toolbar. After 4 old bookmarks, it says at the bottom of the list "From Safari>" and that is the Toolbar entries i tired to import from my current Safari toolbar, the 5/114/19 ones. The same if i bring up the "Show all Bookmarks on Firefox and click on Toolbar. I don't know how i did it but somewhere i found an "import" in Firefox and did that, which resulted in the above. I never found a "bookmark Manager" in either browser. In Safari, there is an "edit bookmarks", which does not have "Import and Backup" like you describe; that's om the File Menu. Using menus and those Alt or F10, or the hotkeys you describe produces nothing i didn't already have. Okay, i don't understand your "Copy the file to another computer profile." Maybe that's because i can't find a "bookmark Manager" in Firefox, or any other "Import Bookmarks", with or without a "From HTML". Help doesn't lead me to either one. So i just now followed FF's help instruction for "Import from HTML", and in Library there is no "Library Toolbar", just the FF toolbar , and nowhere did i find "Import and Backup", so I'm stuck, still and again. I'm using Firefox 66.0.5 (64 Bit) and it says I'm up-to-date. I really appreciate your efforts. I'm obviously doing something wrong

For Firefox;

Open the Bookmarks Manager; Press the Alt or F10 key
to bring up the toolbar, and select Bookmarks.
Hot key is <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> B.

FredMcD: First you have to find "Bookmark Manager". As i explained, i can find no trace of it. "Help" and "Safari Help" do not admit it exists - at least on my machine. The instruction from others on this site did not help me find "bookmark manager". I'm not blowing you off. I didn't realize i should have recorded - with pencil and paper (remember those?) - each step and screen. I really appreciate anyone trying to help. It all seems to go back to being told to use places i cannot find, techniques i try to follow step-by-step from the printed page -- and then that doesn't work.

    Firefox as a whole (the copy on my machine) doesn't need fixing, just the Bookmark function.
    I wrote a long rant, and am not going to waste your time with it.
   Thank you again

That's what's so frustrating. You are one of a group, all of which want me to go to Bookmark Manager". I've explained that there is no bookmark manager listed anywhere i can find. Since my problem is Firefox, why go to Safari for help with Firefox? But i did research the issue in Safari. That's how i exported Safari bookmark file in HTML onto my desktop. Then that's how i somehow imported them into Firefox. But it isn't right.
