  • How do I import Delicious bookmarks into Firefox with tags?

    How do I import Delicious bookmarks into Firefox Bookmarks Organizer so the tags port over? I tried importing but the tags are not coming over.

    I recommend Xmarks. For the long-winded reasons why there's nothing better, read below.
    [https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/xmarks-sync/ https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/xmarks-sync/]
    # Once installed, run the setup wizard and sign up for a free Xmarks account.
    # Once signed up, sync your bookmarks.
    # Head over to [http://my.xmarks.com/ my.xmarks.com/] and click the '''Tools''' menu option on the page, then choose '''Import Bookmarks From Del.icio.us...'''
    # Enter your del.icio.us login information so Xmarks can import your bookmarks.
    # You should see a list of your del.icio.us bookmarks. Click the '''CHECK ALL''' button, then the '''IMPORT CHECKED ITEMS''' button.
    # When Xmarks next syncs your bookmarks, you will have all of your del.icio.us bookmarks complete with tags, in a folder named "Imported from Delicious ''date of import''".
    # If you're the untrusting sort, change your del.icio.us account password.
    There are two official Delicious extensions at the moment. "[https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/delicious-bookmarks/ Delicious Bookmarks]" which not compatible with Firefox 4.0.x, and "[https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/delicious-extension/ Delicious Extension]" which is marked as compatible but doesn't actually work.
    @u48998 |
    Slurp didn't work for me. I got all the prompts like I was supposed to, but clicking the '''Export''' button on the delicious page changed its text to '''Please Wait...''' and it just got stuck like that with no way to continue.
    Apart from that, I was rather uneasy about installing an unreviewed extension from an author I've never heard of.
    @the-edmeister |
    You have that backwards. It's Firefox that does not either import or export tags from or to bookmarks.html. The only way to preserve tags when exporting is to create a json backup; these types of files wipe out all existing bookmarks when imported.

  • When i plug my phone into itunes for the ios update, it downloads but then says it cant connect to the server. How do i get my update?

    When i plug my phone into itunes for the ios update, it downloads but then says it cant connect to the server. How do i get my update?

    Here are Apple Steps for Error 21:
    This error typically occur when security software interferes with the restore and update process. FollowTroubleshooting security software issues to resolve this issue. In rare cases, these errors may be a hardware issue. If the errors persist on another computer, the device may need service.
    My additional advice:
    Also Error 21 can occur with DFU Mode Restore, try Recovery Mode Restore. Restart computer. Open iTunes on computer. Connect iPhone to computer. Hold both home and power buttons until iTunes recognizes iPhone in Recovery Mode. This usually takes about 20 seconds of holding both buttons. Click Restore button of iTunes.

  • Can someone help me find a way to import my bookmarks into Firefox 4.0?

    I've recently suffered a computer crash. I had everything saved on an external hard drive, and now I'm trying to import the places.sqlite that supposedly holds the bookmarks into Firefox. Firefox refuses to recognize this file. I have seen this question posted many times, but no good answer to it. This is an easy drag and drop task for IE. Why can the same not be said for Firefox?

    Unfortunately, yes I did read that article. I tried importing the places.sqlite file from the Library. The places.sqlite file wouldn't even show up so I could select it when I went to import it. I also tried dragging and dropping it into the right place, but the bookmarks wouldn't show when I restarted Firefox. I've wasted hours on this, and I'm pretty frustrated. I don't know what the problem is. I've seen other posts about this same problem, but I haven't seen anyone say why the places.sqlite file refuses to import.

  • I was using Delicious to keep my bookmarks accross different computers. Delicious doesn't seem to be accessible from Firefox 4. How can I import my bookmarks into Firefox bookmarks? Or do you have another solution to access them?

    how do i access my delicious bookmarks with Firefox 4.0?

    To revert to the previous secure version which is 3.6.19, please do the following:<br><br>
    #Go to [http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html Download Firefox v3.6.19] and download it to the desktop.<br><br>
    #Then go to Add/Remove Programs, scroll down to "Mozilla Firefox" and remove it, choosing to keep your bookmarks, customizations etc., (''don't checkmark the box'').<br><br>
    #Then reboot and delete the folder called "Mozilla Firefox" at this location: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox<br><br>
    #Finally run the installation file you downloaded to the desktop earlier.<br>
    Your bookmarks, customizations etc., are maintained in a different location and will become available to you again once you complete the installation.<br><br>
    Having said that, it's always wise to have a backup handy just in case. So please do the following.<br><br>
    #Click the orange Firefox button and choose "''Bookmarks''", then "''Show All bookmarks''" to open the Bookmarks Manager.<br><br>
    #Click the link to ''Import and Backup'' at the top.<br><br>
    #Click "'''Export HTML'''" and save the file somewhere.<br><br>
    After you complete the installation, please go to the [http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ Plugins Check] page and update where necessary.

  • How can I import my aol favorite places/bookmarks to Firefox using the pfc file type?

    I copied the favorites file from my aol account to a flash drive. However when I try to import to Firefox it only looks for html files.

    You will need to concert the pfc file to HTML format, you can do that by using this site - http://www.linkagogo.net/go/Convert?informat=aol&outformat=netscape

  • Can I import Yahoo Bookmarks into Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar without doing it individually??

    PC
    Mozilla 37.0.1
    i figured it out.

    You would have to copy the places.sqlite file or possibly import an HTML backup (bookmarks.html) to get the favicons.
    A JSON backup doesn't include the favicons, so in that case you need to visit each bookmarked site.

  • When i import a video into imovie for the mac why is it so small

    why is it like this
    (the link:https://twitter.com/baratitty_group/status/484150310001442816 )
    the video is 5 minutes long so why is the clip that small?

    If you click on the little Film icon under the main (large) Clip, you be presented with a pop-up window then just drag the Slider to your liking.

  • I've imported my IE bookmarks into Firefox and want to delete some of them without deleting them from IE. How do I do this?

    I prefer to use Firefox as browser. I have imported the favorites from IE into my Firefox. There are many favorites in IE that I do not use but another user of our computer does. I want to delete those favorites (bookmarks) from Firefox. I did one as a test and it was deleted from IE as well. This will not make for happy sharing of a computer!! How can I delete an imported IE bookmark from Firefox without automatically deleting it from IE? Thank you!

    Deleting a bookmark from firefox should not delete it from IE
    Did you delete it properly? Just open ff -> Ctrl + Shift + B -> Right click on bookmark to delete -> Click delete

  • Upgrading to V4 has lost all of my Bookmarks, I still have the restore files in my profile data but they will not load, I have tried importing the html backup file too but it didn't work either. How can I get them back?

    Upgrading to V4 has lost all of my Bookmarks, I still have the restore files in my profile data but they will not load, I have tried importing the html backup file too but it didn't work either. How can I get them back?

    Ok this is bizzare!
    Thank you for your response, I went throught each and every step without any luck, even got the recovery programme, and painstakingly tried to sift through all that mumbojumbo to find what i needed. finally found the bookmark bit, but it had been fully overwritten :(, so on reading about previous ff versions, found the sqlite thingys, and they were relatively unscathed(partly written over, but saveable apparently TG), saved them to adiff drive, amongst other possibly good folders. Then looked up how to install them, and it said to close FF, and install to profile folder.
    So i tried to close FF, and the original problem from a few days ago, where it asked me if 'i was sure i wanted to close this window as it has X tabs open', popped up again. This is where 'open blank page' selection was set, over 'open previous tabs'. Wanting to save that info on how to sort out these friggin files, I reset the Option to 'open previous tabs', and closed FF. After unsucessfully searching for the profile folder on my laptop, i opened FF intending to search online for where i could find said folder.
    AND BANG, surprise surprise, the FF I had just closed with only tabs open about finding out what the heck to do, had disappeared, and instead my original saved tabs were up, and my bookmarks are there..... I am gobsmacked! what the heck just happened there???
    I have made 3 back up in different folders now, of those friggin bookmarks. I am weary now tho of shutting it all down.... what if its back to the other pages I had with no bookmarks, tomorrow :(

  • I plugged in my iPhone to my computer and it erased all of my photos and videos, is there anyway I can get them back?

    I plugged in my iPhone to my computer and it erased all of my photos and videos, is there anyway I can get them back?
    The photos and videos were obviously taken before I plugged it in and I didn't get a chance to back it up. It just synced and erased everything once I plugged it in. The photos and videos were very important to me and it would mean everything to me to get them back. Please help.

    There is more to the story than you're letting on. Possibly prompts from iTunes on your compute when you plugged in the phone that you didn't read before selecting an option...
    The bottom line is, if they are not on your computer as a result of the sync, and you didn't back them up previously, then they are gone.

  • I had all my files, including bookmarks, backed up to my NAS when my hard drive failed. How do I import these bookmarks to Firefox on my new notebook? Is there a single HTML file I should be looking for on my NAS?

    I had all my files, including bookmarks, backed up to my NAS when my hard drive failed. How do I import these bookmarks to Firefox on my new notebook? I can easily find the folder "Favorites" on my NAS, but can't get Firefox to "see" this folder, or my bookmarks.

    If you open Firefox then Firefox will always use the default profile folder as found via profiles.ini on your system drive.
    You either need to import the file in your current default profile or copy the file to your current profile folder while Firefox is closed.
    Firefox 3 stores the bookmarks and the browser history in [http://kb.mozillazine.org/places.sqlite places.sqlite] and no longer creates an HTML backup by default.
    There are also (five) JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder within the Firefox profile folder.
    You can either copy the file places.sqlite to your [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Firefox Profile Folder] or import the most recent JSON backup from the bookmarkbackups folder of that old profile.

    http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox
    See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox
    "Application Data" in XP/Win2K and "AppData" in Vista/Windows 7 are hidden folders.
    See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Show_hidden_files_and_folders
    Go to: Control Panel > Folder Options > "View" tab > under "Hidden files and folders", select "Show hidden files and folders".
    You may want to un-check the box "Hide extensions for known file types" to see the file extensions of all files.
