    You still can't drag them around as you can with most every other browser to custom organize where each will be including which will be out in view on the bookmarks bar as well as the order. Edge got a bit too sand boxed in that regard.

    That's a good one! Most likely you would simply go into the Settings>Favorites and browse for the FF backup file or under the user account>Local>Roaming as pointed to earlier. You would them import the backup itself.

    Now as for backing up things like Outlook or bookmarks if not Favorites A set of custom folders outside of the usual MS created users and Program.xxxx type folder uneffected by upgrades by updates from build to build always seems to work out well. Plus having a second storage drive or device for safe keeping things will always be a help in preventing any total losses by mishap. Backing up the backup of the backups can help too.

    Open favorites and click settings. Then click import from Firefox. Easy!

    You first have to have IE enabled and import your FF bookmarks into IE since Edge will only import from there. Plus have fun trying to move them any to get them in some type of familiar arrangement. Even stretched across two screens here it was a trip trying to get things organized to a limited extent only. Edge at this point is still a work in progress.
    I agree NH. Here's an app that lets you manage Edge favorites - the kicker is that you have to quit Edge to use it! But I tried it a while back and it worked, sort of. I'll bet it's a lot smoother now...

    What's wrong with click and drag in Edge's favorites? I find it very manageable.

    That would be a great way to do it, only Firefox wasn't listed as a choice on any of the 3 desktops and 1 laptop I did it on. Only IE. So I backed up Firefox bookmarks to a .html file and used that to import to IE. Then I could import to Edge from IE.

    I don't see any Firefox option under 'import' either. I had IE and Chrome listed...

    For just moving a single favorite around within a folder, that works. For moving lots of things around, or deleting more than one at a time, or editing URLs within a bookmark, Edge isn't there yet.

    Well so far I had been able to get things organized a little bit at a time over time to finally get most arranged as they are in FF, Waterfox, IE, Opera not so many, Cyberfox, etc. Having dual displays and removing some to bump others one at a time into place is how that was seen to! I would then re-add those bumped back into the hidden collection.

    Seeing the options for FF and Chrome at this time doesn't come as any surprise either since that was to be expected as progress is made over time with anything still rather new. As for the app I will have present that to someone else who has always used IE and will now be running 10 following the upgrade from 7 being worked on.
