yeah, i can get there but it wont let me put those files in.
I believe that you should be able to save the url file as html and I will probably work. Or can't you simply tell firefox to import the url file as it is. The should be some compatibility.
it seems like this version of firefox isnt compatable at all with .url files. when i try to open them in there it acts as if they are a text file. it brings up a white page that says something like this on it.
Konqueror wont open them either. I dont think they were always in URL format so im thinkin Opera or some other program might have changed them all or something. When i opened my folder with them all in there, there was a bunch of url files that i didnt want that looked like some kind of spyware put them there when i was still using windows.
What does the firefox help file have to say about importing bookmarks?
this is all Firefox Help says about it.
"Firefox has a new feature that imports your existing settings from Internet Explorer. It will run when you first install Firefox (and is also available later through File > Import), and it attempts to import your IE Favorites, cookies, stored passwords, and a variety of other data. This saves you time customizing Firefox to fit your needs."
I have a feeling i may be spendin a while today re-entering my 119 bookmarks.
