How to get Firefox bookmarks into your iPad

Apples designed iTunes bookmark syncing to only work with Apple’s native Safari browser and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.  If you are currently a Firefox user on your MAC or PC there is a work around solution. We anticipate an app in the near future that will make manual transfer of your Firefox bookmarks unnecessary.


Firefox allows you to export your bookmarks to a file. You can then import those bookmarks to Safari or Internet Explorer to Sync with your iPad.

Here are the step by step instructions
1. Launch Mozilla Firefox, and start the export procedure like so:
*Firefox 3 (Mac). Choose Bookmarks ➪ Organize Bookmarks to open the Library. Click the Import and Backup button, and then click Export HTML.
*Firefox 3 (Windows). Choose Bookmarks ➪ Organize Bookmarks (or press
Ctrl+Shift+B) to open the Library. Click the Import and Backup button, and then click Export HTML.
2. In the Export Bookmarks File dialog, choose a location for the file and click Save.
Firefox saves its bookmarks to a file named bookmarks.html.
3. Import the Firefox bookmarks file to your browser of choice:
*Safari. Choose File ➪ Import Bookmarks, locate and click the bookmarks.html file, and then click Import.
*Internet Explorer. In versions 8 and 7, press Alt+Z and then click Import and Export.
In the Import/Export Wizard, click Next, click Import Favorites, and then follow the wizard’s instructions to import the bookmarks.html file.
4. Connect your iPad to your computer. iTunes opens, connects to the iPad, and syncs the bookmarks, which now include your Firebox bookmarks.
