Software. Firefox 3 Not Saving Bookmarks

firefox how to save bookmarks

Oct 28, 2008

I'm using Firefox 3 with Mac OSX Leopard. Whenever I bookmark a page, the correct information is in the proper forms. When I click on a bookmark, however, it redirects me to a random page taken from my recent activity. How do I keep the bookmarks from changing once I create them?

OS X. File Saving Locations With FireFox?

Apr 19, 2009

I was curious if anyone could help me out on this.

I recently did a clean sweep of my system drive and am keeping most things external for easier plug-n-play and swap capabilities.

Currently by default Firefox saves downloads to: MacHD > Users > AppleNewton > Downloads

So i changed that to point to my external drive: Volume > Downloads (folder on drive) > Firefox

so when i say goto apple.com and download programs or utilities it prompts the Okay to download and it saves it to that destination. (since it does not auto-launch)

So my problem is those files

that auto-launch another application say..iTunes, VLC or uTorrent.

I download torrent file, it saves the package to the Downloads section but within uTorrent I can send it to a different completed folder.

So i just need to find out a way to get the auto-launch files to be saved to the Firefox downloads folder on the external drive, isntead of defaulting to the MacHD>User>AppleNewton>Downloads folder

it seems to only do it when the item is selected as Open With when using Firefox.

Software. How To Get Firefox Bookmarks Into Safari 4

Jun 16, 2009

like many others I've been using FireFox the past year, but now I want to migrate back to Safari 4. With all my bookmarks that are now in Firefox, of course! Safari 4 has got an import feature. But what kind of file does it want? In any case I haven't a clue how to export my bookmarks from FireFox into any particular file. Do you?

The only thing I could think of to do was go into FF's Bookmarks edit mode and copy/paste the bookmarks menu into an .rtf and an .html file. But that bombed: Safari 4's import wanted neither.
