Exporting Firefox 9.0 Favorites

Learn to export bookmarks from Firefox 9.0 to use with a different browser or on a different computer.

The first step is to find the Bookmarks menu in the Menu bar towards the top of the screen.  If the Menu bar is missing and you do not see a Bookmarks menu, pressing the alt key on your keyboard will make the  menu appear. To enable the menu permanently, you can go to View > Toolbars and check the Menu Bar option.

When you have located the Bookmarks menu, click on “show all bookmarks” in that menu.

Now a new window will open, titled “library”. Look for the “Import and Backup” menu at the top of this window. Click this button and choose “Export bookmarks to HTML”

Next you will be given the chance to choose where you want to save your bookmark file. I usually save mine to a USB drive, so that I can import my bookmarks on any computer at any time. You can save your file wherever is convenient for you.

  1. Stupid title for getting into bookmarks, “Show all bookmarks”. Sounds like it will open all your bookmarks. What was wrong with calling it ‘Bookmarks Manager’? Case of changing something that didn’t need changed.
