How to Import your MSN Favorites into Firefox

Requirements: IE, Windows Live Toolbar and Firefox

Open IE, in the Windows Live Toolbar, click on Favorites (with the Star greyed out) and sign in (the Star is now yellow) click on Favorites again and click on Manage Favorites, this will open the Windows Live Favorites page, in the upper right side you will see Options |Import |Export |Help, click on Import and a smaller window opens which has the option to Import your Favorites directly from MSN Explorer (if you have a lot of favorites like me it will take some time, be patient) once completed, download this from Firefox titled "PlainOldFavorites"; https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/se...tes&cat=all
Restart Firefox and you now have a Favorites Button next to your Bookmarks Button containing all your MSN Favorites.
If you wish not to have the Favorites Button, instead of the download, open Firefox and click on file in the menu bar and click Import

Please take NOTE: PlainOldFavorites add-on is NOT compatible with the Beta or the RC1 versions of Firefox
