10.4: Export Safari's RSS feeds to Firefox
Authored by: zach on Jul 14, '05 12:09:03PM

Actually, there is a far, far easier way to do this if you are using Deer Park Alpha 2, an alpha preview release for what will eventually become Firefox 1.1:

1. Launch Deer Park a2
2. File->Import from Safari
3. There is no step three

Safari import is a new feature, and we'd appreciate your feedback (through bugzilla.mozilla.org) if you have any trouble.

10.4: Export Safari's RSS feeds to Firefox

While it *does* import Safari bookmarks just beautifully, it does not do what this hint does. RSS feeds (feed://) links are still feed:// which is still unsupported in Deer Park. The lack of support for feed:// is already a noted bug in bugzilla, and I would hesitate somewhat to call the fact that they don't munge feed:// into an equivalent http:// a bug.

feed:// is a fairly new protocol, and as such is not yet widely supported. I think fixing feed:// is more important.

I agree with Bladehawk. Firefox Deer Park A2 imported my Safari Bookmarks (nice!), but left feed:// URLs alone.

So, if you really want to covert RSS bookmarks (which is what this hint is about), use my method or jesboat's, until Firefox supports feed:// URLs or SBE gets updated.
