Actually, importing your favourites, etc., from IE is very easy. I currently use FF, Mozilla, Opera, and IE with no conflicts. Some pages that are not web-standard compliant, will not work properly with FF/Mozilla (MS sites, for example). However, FF has many small "extensions" or plug-ins that allow you to configure it to your tastes, and one of the is "IEView" which will open a page in IE with a simple right click.
You may need to install Flash and Java (JRE). See the FAQ here for links and instructions:http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/faq#plugins
There is a good introduction/tutorial on Ff here:http://opensourcearticles.com/articles/fir...english/part_01
Hope this helps. I think once you get the hang of it, you will never willingly use IE again. Many members here use Ff, so you have a large support group if you need it.
