How To Move Your Bookmarks In Firefox

I’ve got a more comprehensive organizational post in the works, but I’m in the middle of preparing my mobile office for a two week trip to Florida. I needed to bring my Firefox links with me on my laptop for blogging purposes. I didn’t know how to do it. But I figured it out.

So, I learn, you learn.

Here’s how to move your Firefox Bookmarks from one computer to another.

  1. In the Firefox menu, select Bookmarks.
  2. In the pulldown menu, select Manage Bookmarks.
  3. A popup box will appear. This is the Bookmark Manager.
  4. In the menu of that popup Bookmark Manager, select File and then Export.
  5. This will create a bookmarks html file. This is the file you need. Save this file and transfer it to your other computer however you see fit.
  6. Now you’re on your other computer with the bookmarks html file.
  7. Open Firefox.
  8. Re-open the Bookmark Manager by re-doing steps 1 through 3 above.
  9. In the Bookmar Manager, select File and then Import.
  10. You want to “Import From File.” Find the bookmarks.html file from your other computer and open it.
  11. Presto.
