    I'm getting sick of Firefox's glitches. I think it's time to move to Safari. Can I transfer my bookmarks from Firefox to Safari? If so, how? Can I move firefox's bookmarks.html file or something?

    Just activate the Safari Debug Menu (in <3.0) or the Developmen Menu in 3.1 using TinkerTool and use the included Bookmark migrator.

    Actually, in Safari 3 (3.0 or 3.1) there's no need to activate the Debug/Developer menus, since there's an Import Bookmarks feature right in the File menu. You'll want to export your bookmarks from Firefox first, which you can do in Firefox's Bookmarks Manager (just look in the menus when the Bookmark Manager is in the front - I know there's a command there). Make a note of where you saved this file then navigate Safari to it when you import.

    I use Bookdog to do this. It works perfectly, and does so much more -- checking for duplicates, broken links, etc. and alphabetizing bookmarks as well.
