How to import Opera bookmarks to Firefox Quantum

If until now you used the Opera web browser and you’ve finally decided to migrate to Firefox Quantum, you should follow these steps to be able to import all your bookmarks to Mozilla’s development:

  1. Step 1: make sure you’ve closed Opera and then go the upper toolbar in Firefox. On the right hand-side, you’ll see a button that looks like a shelf full of books. Click on it to drop down a menu where you’ll find all the functions available in Quantum to manage bookmarks, cookies, browsing history, etc.
  2. Step 2: at the bottom of the menu, you’ll find the option Show all Bookmarks. Click on it to open a window where you’ll see the option Import and Backup at the top the screen. If you click on it, you’ll be offered different options but to import your bookmarks from Opera you should choose Import data from.
  3. Step 3: in the import wizard you can choose Opera as well as any other browser you may have installed on your computer: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer… choose Opera.
  4. Step 4: apart from bookmarks, you can also import other elements such as cookies or the browsing history. You might be interested in importing everything so you can continue browsing just like you’ve always done.
  5. Step 5: now you just have to click on Finish to start running the process.

Once you’ve finished, go to the bookmark tab. There you’ll find whatever you’ve imported from Opera which won’t be added automatically to the bar as you’ll have to do so manually. With this process, you can browse from Firefox Quantum just as you had been doing so on Opera.
