Opera cannot import bookmarks etc from a bookmarks.html file. It crashes every time. Give up?

  • I don't understand why Opera can neither import bookmarks etc from another browser, nor from a saved html bookmarks file on my hard drive. But it crashes / freezes every time. There appear to be no means to do this. If I hear of a method that works, I'll be grateful! But I am skeptical; this is not an uncommon issue.

  • @bwp123 Any browser? Any html file?

    Did you try with a clean profile?

  • Test with this bookmarks.html:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
        <head>
            <meta charset="utf-8">
            <title>Bookmarks</title>
        </head>
        <body>
            <dl>
                <dt><a href="https://www.example.com">Example Domain</a></dt>
                <dt><a href="https://www.arstechnica.com/">Ars Technica</a></dt>
            </dl>
        </body>
    </html>
    

    Does that at least import without crashing/freezing?
