OS 10.6.8. Gmail and my bank tell me to update my browser which I cannot do. I would like to export my safari bookmarks to firefox but the answer I get is to go to "bookmarks manager (library)". followed by Bookmarks>Show All Bookmarks>Import & Backup. That is the third button on the toolbar (Organize, views, Import & Backup) Where is the Bookmarks Manager? I exported the bookmarks to my desktop but I cannot find a way to import them into firefox.
Anyone know how? jaybass

I googled the problem and was directed to terminal and type in: defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1 This allowed me to import my bookmarks to firefox. Jaybass.
