Windows 7: Personal Folder Favorites & FF Bookmarks

19 Dec 2012   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Personal Folder Favorites & FF Bookmarks

Reformatted & added Win 7 to #2 PC. I imported "my Favorites" from internet explorer by FF browser, bookmarks > Import & Backup.

The favorites from i.e. were mostly held in 20 folders with sub folders then the rest, loose individual sites.

The entire list - folders & loose sites now appear in the Private folder config: START > AaLF personal folder > Favorites. (This is good)

But in the firefox browser, I now see only half the folders from i.e. and also not the loose individual sites.

Question: How do i get My Personal Folder Favorites into FF's Bookmarks for easy use??
