Chapter 14. Safari RSS > Import bookmarks from other browsers

Import bookmarks from other browsers

If you've been using Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, or Mozilla as your browser, their bookmarks are automatically imported the first time you open Safari. You'll find them in the Collections pane, labeled as “-imported” bookmarks. At least, that's the way it's supposed to work. If your other browser bookmarks didn't get imported, or if later you want to import bookmarks from another browser, it's still pretty easy.

1.
From Safari's File menu, choose “Import Bookmarks…” to open the “Import Bookmarks” window.

2.
Click “Applications” in the Sidebar, then find the browser whose bookmarks you want to import. If that browser's icon is dimmed and not accessible, as shown below, use this window to navigate to the folder that contains the browser's bookmarks.

The example below is in Column view so you can see clearly the path to the bookmarks file.

  • Click your Home Folder icon in the Sidebar (“jt” in this case).

  • Open the “Library” folder, then open “Application Support,” then open the browser folder you want. Keep digging until you find the sub-folder that contains a “bookmarks.html” file. Select it and click the “Import” button.
