Description Michal Jaegermann 2003-05-04 13:30:33 UTC
Description of problem:

This is a description of a bookmark import straight from mozilla help file:

Before you start, make sure that the bookmark file you want to import is
an HTML file.

   1. Open the Bookmarks menu and choose Manage Bookmarks.
   2. In your Bookmarks window, open the File menu and choose Import Bookmarks.
   3. In the "Import Bookmark file" dialog box, locate and select the
      bookmark file you want to import.
   4. Click Save. 

There are few problems with that as:

No "Import Bookmarks" in File menu.  There are, though, "Import" and
"Export" under "Tools".  Would be relatively minor if not that detail
that on a freshly installed from scratch RH9 installation clicking
on either of these two does not have any effect at all.

Add to that some actions in a bookmark file, say "Delete", are immediate
with no visible means of undo and any changes there become a rather
scary proposition.

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

How reproducible:
So far I failed not to reproduce.

Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2003-06-02 14:24:15 UTC
This works if you point it at a real bookmarks file, at least with my testing
with 1.4rc1.  The help is probably a little outdated and if it gets fixed
upstream I'll pick it up.
