I want to thank you for a perfectly splendid converter and report a minor bug.  (But minor only because of your GREAT layered error checking!;)

The bug is as follows:
Occasionally, (so far not predictably) when I specify a target directory, BMC tries to store the target bookmarks in the parent of that directory (so far has happened for IE targets only).  Fortunately, I got a warning about overwriting the directory and avoided problems.  On one occasion, when I was using empty directories to store, I got the warning, went ahead (the parent did not have any critical files), and got another warning which provided the name of the first file in that parent directory.  At that point, I assumed I did not need to go further.

Note: The correct directory is displayed and highlighted when this occurs.

BUT THANKS FOR YOUR GREAT LAYERED ERROR CHECKING!!!

Thanks for your report. This sounds very strange, and I have never encountered it or had it reported before. :confused:

I would really appreciate as many details as possible to be able to reproduce and analyze this problem.

What version of BMC are you using? What operating system version? Conversion from which browser to which browser are you performing when this happens? Can you give me any sample bookmarks that reproduce the problem?

Thank you!

Thanks for the info normxxx. Yes, it would be really great if you could email me your Firefox bookmark file. Please put it in a zip file before emailing it though (important).

Thanks!
