    I have made the switch (today = Thursday, May 10th) from using a PC for ages back to a new Mac Mini (My first computer was an Apple many moons ago - but I digress). Anyway, I loved using FireFox for windows as my browser. Is there anyway that I can transfer my bookmarks, etc for windows over to the Mac version. I believe that I saw something about :how to" on this forum previously but I can't seem to find it.

    Thanks in advance.:D

    On Windows Firefox:

    Bookmarks menu -> Organize Bookmarks
    File menu (in new window) -> Export Bookmarks

    Save the file bookmarks.html and then transfer it to the Mac however you do that.

    On Mac Firefox:

    Bookmarks menu -> Organize Bookmarks
    File menu -> Import Bookmarks

    Select the bookmarks.html file you sent over from Windows.

    Done.
