    Against my will I have decided to use Firefox instead of Safari due to the many extensions and themes available. However I need to import my Saf bookmarks to Firefix in a smart timesaving manner. Do you know how it's done easily and properly?

    I think when you first start up FireFox there's an option to import bookmarks from other browsers.

    ...and if it don't (or you've already started Firefox in the past):

    In Safari: File -> Export Bookmarks, and save to your desktop (or wherever). (Edit: This step is unnecessary, since the Import under lets you import your Safari bookmarks directly :))

    In Firefox: Choose Bookmarks -> Organize Bookmarks to get the Bookmarks Manager, then choose File -> Import.

    thx for the many answers, I just used the import setting under file and imported the whole lot :)

    Works like a charm :)
