I am wondering if anyone knows how to export Bookmarks from Firefox Back into Safari ???? I have done some searching but can only find out how to go from safari to Firefox, not the other way.


Thanks Guys

Well, first you have to enable the Safari debug menu... Type something into the terminal, I can't remember what off the top of my head... Then import the file: home/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/(randomlettersnumbers).default/Bookmarks.html

After a quick google, macosxhints.com showed me how to enable the Safari debug menu:

Type the following command in Terminal (while Safari is NOT running):

% defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1

Then open Safari, and you've got a debug menu.

edit... I should have just tacked that into my first post. oh well. blah.

Actually, the guy asked for a way to copy links from FIREFOX TO SAFARI and not the other way around.

And actually :rolleyes: When you enable the debug menu in Safari, there is an option to import IE/NS/Mozilla bookmarks as stated in post #2

It worked !

Thanks for all the help guys, using Safari enhancer. I opened up FireFox and exported the bookmarks to a .html file. then used Safari enhancer to import the bookmarks back into Safari.

Thanks for the help guys :)
