using XP professional, have hundreds of Favorites in IE 8. I can not get them over into Firefox either directly from the Bookmarks Manager (show all bookmarks/import and backup/Import data from another browser OR by exporting the Favorites in IE 8 to a html file (did) and then coming back over to Firefox Bookmarks and using the Bookmarks/show all bookmarks/import and backup/import bookmarks from html file. I find the file, double click it open BUT nothing happens in the Bookmarks Library???

It is not a case on some come over - nothing happens??

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Did you try a search in the Bookmarks Manager (Library) for some know bookmarks?


Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.

A user reported last week that his or her imported bookmarks were all filed under the "Unsorted Bookmarks" category. Could you check there? It should be at the bottom of the left column in the Library dialog.

thanks - your 2nd site appears very helpful - will dig into both tomorrow and revert. All I know right now is that the whole Bookmarks section does not appear to function at all - can't even bookmark a specific page I am on!!
