Importing Firefox bookmarks

  • Since transmute hasn't been updated since 2011, I'm guessing it's for the old Opera.

  • According to my experience the only way to to this is the following:

    • open Google Chrome and import Firefox bookmarks
    • then copy Chrome bookmark folder at "C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Bookmarks"
    • and insert them to "C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Next\Bookmarks"

    It sounds complicated, but it works in my case.

    If you have no Google Chrome installed I see no other reasonable possibilty.

    You can do it as I described earlier in detail. it's also a reasonable approach. (There are, you know, many ways to skin a cat ;)). Install Opera 12.17. Import Firefox bookmarks into 12.17, which version of Opera specifically imports from Firefox). Then simply Install Opera 22, and use the bookmarks importer, which was designed to work importing bookmarks from Opera 12.xx

  • If you want you bookmark from Firefox, old Opera ect. to new Opera install TransmutePortable.
    Check first Firefox/Opera bookmarks in first windows, and then second windows choose convert to Chrome /yes new Opera is Chrome/ This convert it is working in 100%. You can convert in any direction.

    Remember the New Opera always check Chrome directions to convert.

  • I have o free version 2.50 /not Pro/ from 2011 and working perfectly.

  • What happens if you have Chrome on your computer also? You have Chrome and Opera 22 on Computer. If you select the destination as Chrome, where would the Firefox bookmarks go? -- Chrome? or Opera 22 where you want them?

  • First do it a copy of bookmarks, and copy to another folder.

    Bookmarks will save where you want. Just change the save destination, if you don't u will overwrite the file, then copy bookmarks to Chrome folder or to Opera folder manualy.

    Thanks albatros48, this method works with Chrome 35 to Opera 22. Easy and effective. Even the foldersstruture is the same. Just wonder why Opera developers didnt include this function to the latest release, when its that easy to do manually.

  • Importing bookmarks from Chrome is supported in the latest Developer build.
