    Hello Tech guys,


    Usually when I want to save a webpage with its full contents as archive usring IE browser,
    follow the following steps: click file > Save as > slect save as type (Web Archive file (*.mht) then click save,


    Recently, started moving bookmarks, etc to FireFox and Chrome, but I faced such issues that not used to be familar with,
    Kindly advise about this, and if any extra tips of using firefox, chrome will be much more appreciated,
    Best regards.

    Firefox: click on File then Save Page As or ctrl+ S does the same thing. You can either keep the suggested name or give it a new one but make sure the extension is htm.

    the easiest way to move bookmarks between different browser is to use a third party addon such as xmarks. that is what I use. as far as saving pages, you can do a save as or use the view offline setting - depending on why you are saving the pages.

    Both Firefox and Chrome can import bookmarks and other settings from IE, no need for a third party program. In Chrome go to the 3 horizontal bar menu at the top right and then "Bookmarks" and from that sub menu choose "Import Bookmarks and Settings".

    To save a webpage in Chrome, go to that same three horizontal bar menu and choose "Save Page As".

    true, but when you start moving between different browsers, they may not always be in the same order nor in the same locations. that is why I suggested a third party utility. It will eliminate any manual moving required to get the bookmarks where you want them.
