I am trying to take my Opera bookmarks and import them to Firebird. I tried importing them with both the .adr file and .html file, but none seem to work. Any suggestions?

:)

Funny that in this forum I can't make my username the same as my login.

It failed to work for me too. I use an external bookmark manager, JetLinks to import and export.

Yeah, you're going to need an external bookmark manager. The one I used is a very small free one, called bpriest. I believe you can find it on simtel.net. In any case, once you find it, download it, extract it to a directory somewhere, and after running it, export your Opera bookmarks into a Netscape bookmark file. Then in Firebird, import that bookmark file.

Thank you it worked very well. I used bpriest. I read in one of the other forums that in a Windows environment, sometimes the Bookmarks will disappear. Is this true, or has it been fixed with any of the new releases? If it is still true is there any way to compensate for this action? I use my bookmarks more than my browser, if that makes any sense :)
