    On my iPad I have saved a number of websites to the iPad's Home Screen - via the "Add to Home" process.

    I would like to copy them to my PC, to later add to Bookmark folder in Firefox.

    Is this posible?

    Open the link, Safari should open, at which time you can highlight the address bar and copy. Open a document (word/Pages) and paste the link into it. Repeat for each home button. once done, export the resulting word/pages file to your PC then copy each one to Firefox's address bar, then bookmark them once they come up. repeat.

    There is no direct way (that I know of).

    You'll need to copy and/or email the URLs from Safari after opening the site.

    You could use the copy option and paste each one into a note or email, instead of emailing them one at at time.

    It's not necessary to highlight the address. There is a copy option in the share (box/arrow) icon to the left of the URL field. Does the same thing, only easier. Other than that, this is pretty much what I was thinking.
