exports bookmarks but imports favorites

Post by bohica » Wed Jul 21, 2010 7:45 am

am moving to a new PC and want to take my bookmarks with me... process:-

in Orca:-
file:export - exports as bookmarks ( that's the only option offered )

new PC...
file:import - will only import favorites... no option to import bookmarks

What's the reasoning here? What's the solution?

Most users use Online Storage for switching computers.
You can also copy the settings folder across manually.
Orca will also inherit Avant's backup/restore settings feature soon.

But, to answer your question. Using Orca's menus:
- File >> Export Bookmarks... >> Saves an HTML file
- File >> Import >> Bookmarks from Mozilla/Firefox >> Select the HTML file
- Use "Organise bookmarks" to move the bookmarks out of the Mozilla folder
