and each time I have failed. Yes, Firefox has being fully closed while doing the following.
When I try to import everything (bookmarks, passwords, cookies), Brave works I believe
in the background. It then puts up a window saying all my data has being imported, it has not.
I’ve then saved off a HTML file of my bookmarks from Firefox and tried to import them that way,

I would like to test Brave a bit more before I use it as my default browser, but not being able to
import my bookmarks is a big obstacle for me. I hope I have provided enough information to

A. Make a meaningful title. “Clicking on the Done button 3 times crashes Brave” is much better than “Brave suddenly crashed”.
B. A screenshot or recording of the issue (Licecap is totally free to use http://www.cockos.com/licecap/)
C. A listing of:
- i. Your Operating System and version (Mac 10.11.x, Windows 7/8/10, Linux distribution, iOS 9/10, Android)
- ii. Your Brave Version. (Desktop users please copy info from about:brave using the clipboard if possible)
D. Detailed step-by-step instructions of how you came across the issue.
- i. I downloaded and installed Brave.
- ii. I created a bookmark and clicked the ‘Done’ button three times.
- iii. Brave suddenly quit and my bookmark was not created.
E. Count to 20 and re-read your post. Could someone take offense at your post? Could you say something a bit more clearly?
