Import Firefox Bookmarks

Asked by Vaughn Cable on 2021-01-15

I cannot import old Fedora 32 (64bit) Firefox (64bit) bookmarks to my new install of Ubuntu (18.04.1) with Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit). It appears to be purposely blocked. The same is true for importing my old Thunderbird address book. Is there a way to defeat these blocks?

  -- Thanks...

I failed to add that I'm a new Ubuntu user. Also, Ubuntu (18.04.1) is the OS in my new DELL 3640 desktop and I'm migrating over from Fedora...

With Thunderbird are the contacts on your Default Email address. If not send them to the Email address Thunderbird uses. They should be in your sent mail already.

One Book mark at a time without opening.
The way I did mine was - Hover over highlight then right click -> select Properties -> Copy then Paste on an Email from Me to Me.
[copy what It is and the web address] Long process except I have all my web links in a folder on the Email server.

Can you help with this problem?
