    Ok ok
    Somebody (I can't remember who, fortunally for him/her) told me that Firefox rules, and that is the greatest, so I thought I might give it a shot.
    I've been using it for a month, and its been the worst month ever, surfing wise. So I decided to move back to what it works, and that is obviously SAFARI!!!

    My question is, is there a way to migrate my bookmarks from firefox to safari?
    When I installed firefox, it asked me if I wanted to copy my bookmarks to firefox, and I said yes, and ever since I've been adding bookmarks to firefox, and now that I want to move back to Safari I'd like to migrate them.

    Anyone????? :confused:

    File -> Import Bookmarks.

    EDIT: Unless of course you're running an old version of Safari...

    I think one can navigate to the Firefox bookmarks file in the profile directory, but it's probably easier, if you're not super fluent, to do this:

    Open Firefox:
    Bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks
    File -> Export
    Save the bookmarks file somewhere you can easily find it -- i.e. desktop\
    Close Firefox.

    Open Safari:
    File -> Import Bookmarks
    Select the copy on the desktop.

    You can now delete the bookmarks file on the desktop if you wish.

    i have also been annoyed with firefox lately, little things that bug me. i was using camino before that and liked it, however, video plug-ins and such were lacking, has there been any improvement in that?

    Is there any way to share bookmarks?

    I mainly use Firefox, but use Safari occasionally. It would be nice to have the bookmarks the same.

    I know there's a bookmarks.html file for Firefox. Can that be used as the location of bookmarks for Safari.
