How to import bookmarks and folders mozilla to the latest version of opera ?

  • How to import bookmarks and folders mozilla to the latest version of opera 24.0.1558.64 ?

  • From what browser? From Presto? Firefox? Chrome? IE?

    Probably Firefox as (s)he mentioned mozilla.

  • I am new to Opera, and have yet to find an Opera help file that actually matches what I see on screen. I tried to import my Firefox bookmarks to Opera 24. Opera Help (http://help.opera.com/Windows/12.10/en/importexport.html) says:
    "Select Settings > Import and exportFile > Import and export."
    I can get to settings. There is no "Import and export file". What am I missing?
    Another Opera Help page (http://help.opera.com/Windows/12.10/en/sitepreferences.html) --- says
    "To manage all site preferences, go to Settings > Preferences > Advanced > Content and select the "Manage site preferences" button." For the life of me, I can't find PREFERENCES anywhere in Settings, anywhere in Opera. Are the Help files referring to older versions of Opera? And there is NO Print Preview???!!
    Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you.

  • Same issue here and there does not seem to be a solution. I switched to Opera but may now have to move on.

  • ShipleyJ, they say some settings are hidden treated as advanced, and one needs to go to opera-flags first to activate them.

  • Thank you joshi - I didn't know about flags until your comment. Flags may be too advanced for me, but I also don't understand why Opera would choose to make importing bookmarks hidden. If that's the case, I'm very disappointed, especially because I really do like some of its features.

  • Opera Help (http://help.opera.com/Windows/12.10/en/importexport.html) says:

    This tutorial is for Opera 12.

    At the moment Opera Blink does not have a built-in feature to import bookmarks from other browsers.

    You can try to do this:

    1. Enable opera://flags/#first-run-import and close Opera
    2. Make Firefox your default browser
    3. Reinstall Opera
    4. Run Opera
  • leocg - thank you for the instructions and information. I am discouraged that Opera makes this so difficult. (And NO Print preview?? ) I will look at the tutorial for Opera 12, but is there no tutorial for Opera 24? Can you recommend the best website/web page to go to for help with Opera 24? Thank you again.

  • You can use this site :wizard:
    Also I saw an Opera community group on Facebook, with over a thousand members - but I can't say anything about it.

    Apart from that, I guess you can try a 'developer' version of nuOpera - to already get accustomed to some things what they're likely to be when your latest 24 updates to the next latest stable version...
    They say 25 has already(how fast!) a bookmark manager - there are issues with it already revealed judging by this forum; and there's also 26dev, but I haven't heard anything either good or essentially bad about it yet...

    As i said, there is no bookmark importer on Opera Blink yet. It may come in the future as Operas 25 will/may come with a bookmarks manager.

    No print preview yet.

  • joshi - right -this site is undoubtedly the best place for help. And leocg - I didn't know what Opera "Blink" was until checking Wikipedia. I knew I had Opera 24, and that's about it! (Remember I'm a newbie here, but will try to ask reasonably intelligent questions ;-). Appreciate the good feedback and tips from you both - will stick with it and keep checking this forum! thanks-

  • I am finding Opera an interesting browser. Used to use it years ago in Windows but eventually moved to others. I download and installed the 25beta release.

    The biggest issue I have is what others have already mentioned, namely the inability to import bookmarks.

    It seems someone just blew it with this. Every other browser I use has the capability, but not Opera 25. I've tried all the solutions mentioned and no help. For now I'll keep using it on a casual basis and see if it will come along.

  • use any of the bookmark plugins available for opera, i did this opera dev 26.0.1632.0

  • Opera -> More tools -> Import bookmarks and settings... (but you need Opera 26(.0.1646.0) for it)
