on Ubuntu 10.04 how do I transfer my bookmarks from Firefox to Chromium ?
the Chromium browser cannot accept the file bookmarks.json as an importation.
Thanks to bring me the solution :)

jrev,

It would probably be most simple to use the xmarks plugins for both firefox and chromium to synchronize the marks.

and
https://chrome.google.com/extensions/search?itemlang=&q=xmarks
respectively.

In fact, all the bookmarks I tried to import are well imported in an extra folder named "imported"
but the previous bookmarks are still there and I have to suppress them one by one...
Have you a better trick to help ?

There is! Goto your options in Chromium and use the sync to sync all your browser and computers.

Edit: you can also use the import from other browsers option on the same option box.
