@Mattches. Thanks for the suggestions.
As it happens I’d already read that and attempted it without success. I found another posting somewhere here concerning others having difficulty importing bookmarks and followed the instructions there (export from safari, then import the file). That worked.
But the issue of passwords is rather different it seems. That is, when I look at the page you sent I notice a few things.
- The word ‘password’ does not appear in the text, rather ‘browsing data.’
- The ‘work-around’ above brought over bookmarks, but no ‘settings’ of any kind.
- When I follow the instruction listed on the page you sent, I note that item 4 is “Check the desired settings to import and click Import” but there ARE NO options given except “Favorites/Bookmarks.”
So I seem to be stuck at re-entering them all one by one. Of course there may be some super obvious thing staring me in the face without my noticing, but I tried those instructions 4-5 times before looking for the work-around, and I’ve tried them again since hoping to see any other options than ‘Favorites/Bookmarks’, but to no avail.
