I normally use firefox as my browser but sometimes have to use IE. When i try to import my favourites from fire fox through 'file' 'import an export' it blanks out the option to import from another browser only from another file. How do i import the favourites from firefox without having to go to each website and do them one by one?

Open Internet Explorer,click on the file menu/Import-Export and work your way thru the import/export wizard.Your Firefox Bookmarks should import to IE that way.

Firefox
>Manage Bookmarks
>File
>Export
>Save File to desktop (Is what I'd do)
Close Firefox

Next:
>IE
>File
>Import/Export
>Next>Import Favourites
>Import from File/Address>(browse to Firefox bookmark file on desktop file saved on desktop)
>next
>finish

Glad you got it to work! I learned something from Scarlett's post too!
