Hey guys, thanks for your reply. I don't know what's up, but I
just tried to send you the screenshot you wanted, but the browser
wouldn't send the "Comment."
The version of TFF I'm working with is 17.0.1, and the
"grayed-out" Bookmarks.plist is in it's normal Safari folder, under
10.4.11. It's not "grayed-out" normally, and Safari can work with
it just fine, and I can migrate it to other copies of Safari, and
also to Firefox.
Sorry to have to write this all out, but when I tried to send
the screenshot, TFF accepted the file, but the "Comment" would not
transmit. I thought you would like to know about this, too.
Derek, I'm not sure whether I understand correctly what you
attempted, but I can say as much: The data import function for
Safari (Bookmarks etc.) does indeed not work. I just tried it with
Safari 4 on 10.4, as well as Safari 5 on 10.5. TenFourFox 17.0.1
says Import Complete, but no bookmarks are added.
As a workaround: Have you tried exporting you Safari bookmarks
as html (File>Export Bookmarks in Safari…) and them
importing them to TenFourFox (Bookmarks>Show all
Bookmarks>Import Bookmarks from HTML)?
You guys are fast. Thanks! Yes, I tried doing the import-thing,
but the Bookmarks.plist was "grayed-out," and could not be copied.
Then, when I tried to send a screenshot, as you requested, the
browser would not transmit the "Comment," as I alluded to in my
Derek, while clearing our spam sieve I may have accidentally
deleted one of your messages that had ended up there instead of
restoring it. If that's the case – I'm sorry, can you re-send
your message, please?
The function broke between TenFourFox 13 and 14. I'm currently
investigating if this is our bug or Mozilla's. It will likely be
repaired, but I can't say how long it'll take. For the time being,
you can still use the html method to import bookmarks. Sorry I
can't be of more help right now.
I couldn't find any Bugzilla entries related to that, only the
HTML import problem.
I fired up Virtual PC to look into the Windows XP side of
things. FF 17.0.1, as expected, doesn't import HMTL bookmarks file
generated by Safari 5.0.6 (Mac 10.5) and Safari 5.1.7 (Win XP).
This should be fixed in the current nightly or Aurora 19. However,
Import data from another browser (Safari 5.1.7 Win XP) works
Now I don't know if our PPC Safari versions are simply too old
for the current FF data importer, or if there is another (endian?
TFF? PPC-specific?) bug. The importer is broken on Aurorafox 19 as
well. It imports no bookmarks, settings or any other data at
I can't test FF on Intel Mac right now, but I guess if the
importer has been broken for the whole Mac platform for so long,
there should be something in Bugzilla. The last TFF version with a
working Safari data importer is 13. I.e., the function broke at the
same time the HTML import also broke, so maybe the bugs are related
I know this is an old thread, but I only saw one other and that was closed. I've recently downloaded Version 31.7.0 of TFF and tried to import bookmarks from Safari 5.0.6 to no avail. I tried both methods using html and directly from another browser. I don't get any error messages and it says done but nothing gets imported.
Thanks for any help.
