Yup, I thought about linking other browser's bookmarks but was stumped
at the very first try. I tried opening Konqueror's bookmarks which are
in an xml file (XBEL format?) and Iceweasel complains about the absence
of style information with the xml file!!

Oh, and Iceweasel's import wizard (probably because it is aimed at
Windoze users) does not offer to import Konqueror's bookmarks either.
