Importing Firefox Bookmarks to Chrome

In my last post, I wrote about the Google Chrome browser.

I was having a hard time getting it to read my bookmarks in firefox and import them into chrome.

I had tried the way I was supposed to import them, but they just wouldn't come through.

After some research, it was determined it was probably one of my firefox extensions.

So instead of deleting them all, I tried another method that worked like a charm.

I will post what I did, so hopefully it can help another user.

I found this info online:

1. Go to Firefox Bookmark
2. Click on Show all all bookmarks
3. Click on Import and Back up your bookmark
4. Click on Export HTML
5. Save it on a desired location
6. Open Chrome
7. Click on Bookmark and select Bookmark Manager
8. Click on Organize
9. Click on Import Bookmark
10 Go to where you originally saved the HTML...

Worked like a charm and imported them all.

I really like the way they run across the top of the browser - the whole screen gets used and they are still available.

I have been organizing them into folders on the bar, and it is coming together quite neatly.

I am really liking this browser and will explore some of the extensions and apps over the next few days.
