Can I Find My Firefox Favorites?

I clean sweep upgraded from winXP to Win7. is there somewhere I can find my FireFox favorites, somewhere in the program files maybe? I found the favorites for IE, so there must be a way to get them back for FF

Steve7 Welcome.

Clean sweep meaning you formatted your HD? Is so everything is gone unless you made a backup.
If you upgraded you should see a directory called Windows OLD which should have everything you had on your system.

Hope for the best.

If you can't find the FF favorites I'd copy the old IE favorites into the New Favorites Directory then go into FF and import.

If you can't find the FF Favorites I'd import the old IE FAV into FF.
