I tried Brave this morning but like others on here I was unable to import bookmarks or history, although it sounds like at least they had partial success. Not so in my case.
Sorry, but without the ability to import bookmarks, history, and passwords, it’s a complete nonstarter. I have thousands of saved bookmarks and thousands of sites in my history that I need to access (passwords — meh). Without those, there’s zero chance I’ll switch to Brave. Don’t get me wrong, I completely support what you’re trying to do. Honestly, this is such a key element of consumer conversion, I’m a bit surprised this wasn’t fully solved prior to launch. But I digress.
In my case, I’m not even offered an option to import them. I’m attempting to import from FireFox’s cooler cousin, Comodo IceDragon — which, as I understand it, has the same basic framework as FF. In the installation phase, Brave offers to import from IE (which I only use when some stupid site can’t use FF), Chrome (which I only installed because of DirecTV), and an HTML file. Brave doesn’t even see IceDragon nor the FF browser, which I kept in case didn’t like ID. Both of them aren’t even an option. It’s like Brave doesn’t think they exist.
Is there a way to force Brave to find the appropriate folders? Perhaps the way one does with “open with…” in the options menu when right-clicking on a file Windows isn’t sure what to do with?
I am on Windows 7, 64 bit system. Plenty of RAM and all the fixin’s. Let me know what else I can offer that might help fix this.
