When you use "Safe Zone" everything will be lost when you close safe zone. If you want to save bookmarks, etc, may I suggest using the on-demand sandbox. Hope this helps.  :)

  No they dont import at all while im in safezone. I could only visit one website at a time and then save this sites as bookmarks alright with no problems and I dont lose these bookmarks once I leave safezone either . they stay permanently unless I choose to erase them.Its just that I cant get them to import from my firefox browser. ;)

You never will as safe zone is an isolated system..  Think of it as another computer

Like I suggested, run your browser in the on-demand sandbox! Please don't complicate a simple task.  :)

I thought there was a way (in another topic) to export your firefox bookmarks, import them into IE and them those IE bookmarks should be able to safe zone browser.

However, essentially the only bookmarks you should need in the save zone browser would be those of your on-line banking and other security/identity sensitive sites.

Otherwise do as is suggested run your default browser in the regular sandbox.

You could always create a text file containing the websites
you intend to visit while you're using SafeZone.

Where are you going to put this text file, as it surely can't be placed inside the safe zone desktop ?

If access is allowed to external files it would be introducing a hole in security.

The safe zone browser is meant to be able to import the bookmarks (why else have the option), but this appears only to work with importing IE bookmarks.

I think I may have found the problem a few days ago I uninstalled my browser and downloaded a new one from mozilla firefox because it was a bit unstable I just notice was missing some plugins went back to the download page and notice the browser I downloaded was a new make firefox 5 I had firefox 4.1 previous Its not working with the plugins had previous so maybe thats why wont work with the safezone browser. :o
