How to copy my Firefox and Opera address books?

  Daibus 18:21 29 Aug 2006

Which is the easiest way to transfer my Firefox and Opera address books from the desktop to my notebook?

Sorry - I should have said my Bookmarks/Favourites in Firefox and Opera plus my address book in Thunderbird.

Many thanks.

Bookmarks, manage booksmarks, file, export

I'm sure Opera has something similar.

Thunderbird: I've not used it for a while but under address book, tools, there is an export option.

To import, do the reverse for both this and bookmarks

Many thanks Diodorus Siculus - I suppose I can export to a Flash Drive, and do I then just drop into the programme or do I have to locate a specific folder?

Sorry if this is a basic question.

Use the excellent Mozbackup click here

Saves pretty much everything you need.

JayDay - thanks for the info re Mozbackup - it was off development for a while and I'd not realised it was up and running again.
