You "export" them. It creates an html file and then you import it into the new system.

I like the *idea* of Internet-based bookmark storage, but I hate the reality of it. I have yet to find one that is secure. I would host it on my own server but all of the plugins want to use ftp, and I simply don't run ftp daemons on any of my servers. If anyone knows of a service where I don't have to share my bookmarks with the world I'd love to know about it.

I just export them to my flash drive. I always have them available then and they arn't floating around on the internet to hack into.

1) I have a number of bookmarks that are work-related, and I'd prefer not to give out the resources I've compiled for our specific purpose to the world. It's small, but a company's bookmarks can be a competitive advantage.

2) I have quite a few bookmarks that go directly to administrative login pages. I'd rather not give any hackers a head start on where to go to try and crack my password.

Ding Ding Ding!!! I have tons of bookmarks to my VPN connections. I'd be screwed if someone got ahold of them.

firefox - Bookmarks < organize bookmarks < file < export


IE - File < import/export < popup < next < export favorites


copy files to new location


reverse process
