How do I Export Opera 80 Bookmarks, which only allows Imports, bookmarks into Safari 15 or Firefox 93?

On MacAir (7,2. early 2015), it came 2B that I couldn't erase Safari History.
With research, I was able to do it, but it lost all Safari Bookmarks at the very same time.
(Have no bookmarks in Firefox) Don't use Chrome, & prefer to keep it that way, if poss.

Hiya

Are you still having this problem?

If so, It seems there may be two ways to export the bookmarks. One is mentioned here:

https://forums.opera.com/topic/40531/exporting-bookmarks-and-settings-from-opera-to-other-browsers/2

which by the looks of it, is this:

For bookmarks, goto the URL opera://bookmarks and use the drop-down at the bottom left to export bookmarks to an html file
Or there is an addon here:

https://www.howtogeek.com/136116/how-to-easily-back-up-and-migrate-your-browser-bookmarks/

Scroll down near to the bottom to find Opera and the first two screenshots explain how to use the addon.

Then, once you have the html file, you can use that to import into Firefox:

or Safari:

It worked! It worked! Took a bit of fussing around to make it happen in Firefox, then, knowing which end was up, importing the Opera bookmarks to Safari was a snap!
Tons of thanks, Eddie!
P.S. I have a cat named Eddie whom I love very much. He's a real character. Drives me crazy and charms the hell out of me every day. Here he is today playing with his jack. :)

Excellent, glad to hear it worked :)

Cat's are lovely, I have one called Leo that was my mum's cat, and he gets on so well with our dog, which is a bonus. Was playing with leo today with a piece of string, got a bit too close, and the razer claws got me :D
