Total Newbie - need help on viewing Bookmarks

  • I'm migrating from Firfox and used to having a toolbar displayed, so I can click on top 15 sites I use etc.

    Also would like to save more bookmarks but I'm lost.

    I'm trying to click the heart ikon but not getting much response..

    Feel free to treat me as an idiot and give me some simple clues....

    Any help very greatly appreciated !

    But haven't found my old firefox list anywhere.... : (((

  • Under More tools on the menu is an option to import bookmarks and settings - try that.

  • Many thanks for responding. I've tried the settings part. Still no visible sign of my old firefox bookmarks.

    Is it possible to load a .json file ?

    : )))

  • You may need to export the bookmarks from Firefox, then.

  • OK I've got a json file on the Desktop. do I just leave it there and then use the settings option and see if it shows up in the small heart shaped ikon contents ?

    Many thanks for responding !

  • Success !!!!

    I went to 'File' in the top of the window menus, then to 'Import bookmaks and settings... ', then to to a pop up windows which suggest 'Mozilla Firefox' Now dont be fooled by that !! It has a pulldown menu option on its right hand side. The only option that actually works is 'Bookmarks HTML file', so select that now it does offer an option to find the file, I had put it in Desktop.

    Then proceeding arrives with something you can get to with clicking on the 'heart shaped ' ikon.

    So I'm very happy ! Thank you very much with your help which shopped me giving up !

    I've no idea why the 'firefox' option failed completely.

    I looked in root/usr/share and could not find the folder in which Opera and its data/bookmarks is kept. so could not just plonk the bookmarks straight in.

    Hope this will be useful for other users of Linux Opera.

    So delighted I've got a faster and now relative tame Browser ! Well done the Opera Team !
