bookmarks for orca

Post by mathman » Mon Feb 15, 2010 1:07 am

I just downloaded orca and I saw that its bookmark list is a copy of my avant browser list. I would like to add my firefox bookmark list to orca. How do I do this?

In Firefox: Bookmarks >> Organise Bookmarks... >> Import and Backup >> Export HTML...
In Orca (or Avant): File >> Import >> Bookmarks from Mozilla/Firefox >> Select the HTML file

There was an error in my original statement. Orca got its bookmarks from from IE8 list, not from my Avant list. I would like to replace the IE8 list with my Avant list, since that is up to date.

In Avant: File >> Export Bookmarks... >> Saves an HTML file
In Orca: File >> Import >> Bookmarks from Mozilla/Firefox >> Select the HTML file
Organise bookmarks to move them out of the Mozilla folder

Or open up a command prompt and type or copy/paste this single command (this will overwrite any bookmarks currently stored in Orca):

Code: Select all

copy "%appdata%\Avant Profiles\.default\bookmarks\" "%appdata%\Orca Profiles\.default\bookmarks\" /Y
