  2. Click options.
  3. On the left, click Advanced.
  4. Click the certificates tab.
  5. Click view certificates.

Importing Bookmarks

Importing bookmarks from another browser is easy and works perfectly. You can do the entire process from within Firefox.

  1. In Firefox, click the to the right of the Bookmarks button on the right side of the navigation toolbar.
  2. Click Show All Bookmarks to open the Library window.
  3. From the toolbar on the Library window, click Import and Backup.
  4. Click import data from another browser.

Organising Bookmarks

Firefox’s tools to organise bookmarks are buggy. Some drags do not take. It won’t let you delete some bookmarks. Some bookmarks show up in one menu, but not others. There is a menu item command to alphabetically sort bookmarks. The syncronchronise feature sometimes deletes most of your bookmarks. Make sure to do a backup first. You can select .json or .html format. Use .html format. You can then use an text editor to rearrange and prune the entries and reimport.
