Bookmarks on the Safari menu, import

Before you can feed it to Safari with the bookmarks from your old browser, you must first export them from there. In Firefox, this is done via the menu function "show all bookmarks - Import and Backup - export bookmarks to HTML". In the case of Google Chrome, you can find the command in the bookmarks Manager under the menu item "Organize". Both of the browsers store bookmarks as an HTML file, with "bookmarks" in the name. You just have to know where you saved it. Work through the following points:
  1. Open the Safari Browser.
  2. Click in the menu bar on "file".
  3. Select "bookmarks import".
  4. Open the folder where you have stored your Bookmarks.
  5. Select the desired HTML file.
