    Its entirely likely that I am dumb as rocks because I assumed this should be easy enough to do.

    So far I have tried importing my Firefox 3.5 bookmarks into IE8, as well as importing them into Safari 4. I go to sync my iPod touch 2G in iTunes with bookmarks enabled with Safari as the sync partner. When I open my Safari Mobile on my iPod it only shows folders and no links.

    Would someone please explain to me what gives? Is there a better way to do this?

    I have Googled and searched the forums and seen solutions ranging from RSS feeds and third party applications that don't actually import the bookmarks into Safari Mobile.

    Yes, I looked inside the folders and I saw nothing.

    Yes, the html bookmark imported just fine into Safari 4 and I can use the links inside the browser.

    Erm... I think I fixed it. And yes, I'm probably as dumb as rocks.

    For some reason Safari did not like me putting my Firefox bookmarks in a folder and made all of the links in the sub directories invisible. Don't know why.

    It only just occurred to me to delete all of the existing Safari bookmark directories and make my Firefox directories root. Then it worked.

    *phew*

    Thank you for the assistance!
