    Can you copy Firefox favorites and put them into Safari?

    If so how is this done

    I think you have to export your bookmarks out of Firefox and then choose Import bookmarks from the Safari menu. It puts them a folder which you will have to then drag them out of (unless you don't mind drilling down through folders), but it works well.

    If you use Foxmarks Firefox and Safari plugins it will automatically keep the two sets of bookmarks in sync :)

    Don't know whether Safari 4 is supported officially, but it works fine for me...

    Beware that if you use the bookmarks bar in Firefox with favicons that your safari bar is going to look ridiculous. Other than that, Foxmarks is your best bet. I've got it synced up with my office computer and both FF and Safari on my MacBook. Therefore, Safari on my touch also stays updated.

    I use Foxmarks too and was chuffed to discover this week that it is compatible with Safari (I'm new to Mac).

    However, I wish that Safari would show Favicons on the bookmarks bar.
