OS X :: Is There A Way To Save Safari's Bookmarks?

Oct 15, 2010

I've had Snow Leopard since launch. I want to do a fresh install, and then copy the files I want onto it from my external hard-drive. I have some questions though:

Will I have to redownload all the system updates that came out since Snow Leopard's launch? Is there a way around that?

Is there a way to save Safari's bookmarks?

If I want to keep a certain application, do I save the DMG or the installed icon onto the hard drive?

I copied the Pictures folder onto the hard-drive, which includes the 'iPhoto Library' file. Will this put my events back onto iPhoto?

How do I save address book contacts?

How do I save iTunes playlists/play counts/library etc?

Maybe there's an easier way of doing a fresh install while still being able to select these things to keep?

OS X :: How To Save Bookmarks In Safari

Dec 15, 2010

My Mac has been having some issues with "Kernel Panics" and after taking it to the Apple store and them finding nothing wrong with it while doing their tests, their advice was to just do a clean install without using the "migration helper" feature. I already know how to move over my music files, documents, etc. However, I have a ton of bookmarks saved and I'd hate to hate to build my bookmarks from scratch after doing a clean install of OS X. How can I save my bookmarks?

OS X :: Safari Won't Save Bookmarks?

Jan 25, 2010

I am on a MacBook (OS 10.5.8) running Safari (4.0.3). All of a sudden I have noticed that when I try to set a new bookmark, it appears in the folder on the bookmark menu bar, until I shut down and then it disappears. However, when you go through the Bookmark Bar, through the open book icon, the bookmark is there.

I tried exporting the bookmark.plst and then deleting it from finder and trying to import them back. This resulted in the bookmarks appearing to be there, until I shut down safari. When I restarted, I was left with the default bookmarks. I then tried to restore Safari from a back up a month ago and one 6 months ago. This got me my old bookmarks back, but didn't solve the problem of the disappearing bookmarks.

I'm not sure how uninstalling safari and reinstalling.

Safari :: Won't Save Bookmarks Or Extensions

Apr 12, 2012

I'm using Safari 5.1.5 on a MacBook Pro. After using Chrome for a year I have switched back to Safari. I set up all my bookmarks & extensions and it worked great for a few days until I had to restart the computer. Then Safari opened up with only my OLD bookmarks, and no extensions! *This has happened twice now!!* Also, when I go the Extensions panel under Preferences, it says my extensions are "installed" yet they are nowhere to be found.

Is there something I need to do to SAVE my bookmarks and extensions, because there's no way I'm going to putter around re-creating them each time I reboot the computer.

Jul 16, 2004

I continue to have problems with Safari after the Version 10.2.8 Apple pulled a year or so ago. It Unexpectedly quits everytime I hit any arrow, delete or modifier key. I decided for some reason to once again delete Safari and everyhing I could find. Anyway I want to get all the Safari bookmarks from my powerbook which works fine, and get them over to my iMac. There appears to be no way to save or transfer them! Unless I use .Mac which I can't afford.

On a personal note, I'm glad I have a shaved head because I would've pulled out all of my hairs by now, trying to find this online. Searched everywhere. On here, Apple Support forums, Google, YouTube, you name it.

Safari :: Updated 1.5.1: Bookmarks All Gone?

Mar 30, 2012

Was autonotified that 2 updates were available: Safari 1.5.1 and iTunes. After the installation, all my Safari bookmarks, bookmark menu, bookmark bar are gone and reset to what looks like a default list. I am running the latest LION release/version...  

I know I can back up from my Time Machine by going to ~/Library/Safari/bookmarks.plist and restore.. however I can not locate the file? 

I know that ~/Libray is hidden so I went to Finder and pressed option GO and library displayed... I then opened TIme Machine and attempted to find the bookmarks.plist under Safari on an older backed up copy and the file was not there..

Safari :: Way To Reorganize Bookmarks

Jun 11, 2012

I have way too many Safari bookmarks including many redundancies. I need to do a wholesale reorganization of my Safari bookmarks.

I recently started using Dragon Drop which brilliantly facilitates moving Finder files and folders around tremendously, espcially since I started using a trackpad and find it least useful for any dragging chores. But I just discivered that while Dragon Drop can be used for moving bookmarks, it only moves copies and leaves the original where it started, which is less than helpful in expediting the reorganization task.

But the task facing my Bookmarks reorganization is closest to a reorganization of my finder.

Wait a second! I just found that I can have two bookmarks windows open at the same time on two different Safari screens on my two-screen desktop setup and drag and drop between the two screens as a way to facilitate bookmark reorganizaton.
