    You don't actually need a third-party utility...all you have to do is enable the Safari debug menu. Type the following in Terminal:

    % defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1

    Restart Safari, and you'll see the Debug menu. You can then export your Safari bookmarks as an HTML file.

    Then in Firefox, just import from the file.

    BTW, if you want to turn off the Debug menu in Safari, replace "1" with "0" in the above command.

    I had no idea you could do this, and always used to do it the other way - thanks, you learn something new every day... :)

    Well I activated the Debug menu in Safari, but how do I export my bookmarks to html? I can't find it anywhere.

    The seventh option up from the bottom should be "Export Bookmarks..."

    I just realized you're on Tiger while I'm on Panther...the Debug menu might be different in Safari 2.0. If that's the case, you'll have to get help from a Tiger user...
