Description Raphael Groner 2018-05-06 08:15:31 UTC
[Texts copied from the Debian bug]

Description of problem:
all the bookmarks I had with qupzilla are now gone in falkon. 
Looking for a solution i found out that there is an "import bookmarks feature" 
in falkon, but one need first to export all the bookmarks in HTML, and this 
should have been done before removing qupzilla.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade F27 to F28

Actual results:
all bookmarks lost

Expected results:
bookmarks automagically migrated from qupzilla into falkon

Additional info:
Workaround is to copy ~/.config/qupzilla/profiles/default/bookmarks.json 
to ~/.config/falkon/profiles/defaults/

Comment 1 Raphael Groner 2018-05-06 08:17:46 UTC
Automatic migration from QupZilla will be in Falkon 3.0.1. 

If you want, you can cherry-pick these two commits: 


Please consider to include those two patches till we have an official new release of upstream. It would be more user-friendly for a smooth migration from F27 to F28.

Comment 2 Raphael Groner 2018-05-06 08:21:12 UTC
Additional info:
Workaround is to copy ~/.config/qupzilla/profiles/default/bookmarks.json 
to ~/.config/falkon/profiles/default/

(mind the missing s)
