Status: Fixed
In ver: (rev:22964) :

We import only the contents of the bookmark bar, but not the bookmark menu of 
Safari. Verified with Safari 2.x, Safari 3.x and Safari 4.x.

We do not import any bookmarks from Firefox. Verified with Firefox 2.0, Firefox 3.0 and 
Firefox 3.5.

Is there a workaround available? like copy bookmarks.html or json from Firefox to some 
specific location?

Rohit was re-testing with SNV Revision: 23594
Glad to hear it's coming - any ETA?  I've got so if you can send me the 
instructions for testing this I can give it a crack too.  I'm importing from Safari.

Is bookmark import for Mac working now (09/30/09)?

yes, Safari/Firefox importing is implemented only for the first run. 
We are working on Bookmark manager to import bookmarks at run time.
