I had this issue as well and exported my bookmarks from Chrome to a file, then edited the file to remove the "Imported From Firefox" folder.


This is pretty simple to do since the Chrome bookmarks are saved in XML, and all bookmarks are child nodes to the folder node they're inside.


Once you remove the folder, just re-import the bookmarks file and you'll be good to go.

This is one of the limitations of Chrome.?? If you import all of your IE Favorites into Chrome, and then add new Bookmarks in Chrome itself, you will wind up with two bookmark lists: the ones from IE and the ones created in Chrome, and there is no way to merge them into a single bookmarks list. Which means that you might have to search both bookmarks lists to find the one you're looking for, which could be a nuisance.

But no way to actually organize them in folders like IE? What will happen if I import all my folders from IE?

Hi Sharron,

??

I actually found bookmarks the hardest transition when I first moved from IE to chrome, but now use chrome all the time and almost never use IE any more. One tip I can give regarding bookmarks which I found really helpful with Chrome is there is a key combination to quickly access bookmarks in a list similar to how IE displays them. If you press and hold ALT and then press F (it should say context menu at this stage), then release alt and f, press b (it should say something like bookmarks sub menu), simply press right cursor key and you???re in the list of bookmarks. I realised As I wrote that it actually sounds more complicated than it actually is , but I do find this key stroke a really quick and easy way of accessing bookmarks in chrome. Hope that helps.

What do you mean as menus being quite as deep as? I???m confused about bookmarks for example in both Firefox and Google Chrome. IE is so simple. I don???t know what I???m missing here.

I don't think there is one best web browser.?? The chromium-based ones are okay, although I try to avoid actual google chrome because of its spying.?? I'd much rather use brave it blocks ads and lets me read things where other browsers just say you have to subscribe or allow ads.?? I like firefox for the fact that its menus aren't buried quite as deep as chromium-based browsers.?? Other than the menus they all basically work the same, so there really is no reason to restrict yourself to only using one browser.

Hi all:

Please post your recommendations of what you think is the best web browser to use with the latest version of JAWS. I seem to go back and forth on this and would like to settle down and really learn using what folks think is best.

Thanks.
