Merge Bookmarks from Two Firefox Installations

Sometimes we have Firefox browser installed on more than one computers or on different operating systems in a dual boot configuration. And we have bookmarked a different set of bookmarks on each of the installations. If you want the merge the bookmarks from each of these Firefox installations then you can do so easily. This is how :

The following steps show how to merge bookmarks from Firefox installed on Computer 1 to the Firefox installed on Computer 2. But the same procedure can be repeated for more than two computers.

Step 1. Export from Computer 1

  1. Start Firefox browser.
  2. From the menubar, select Bookmarks → Organize Bookmarks.

    Open Bookmarks Library in Firefox

  3. In the Library window, select from the toolbar Import & Backup → Export HTML.

    Another win for Trish! You can also use this with one computer if you are copying/restoring an HTML file from your data backups.
