Many thanks for your reply.

From the link that you gave me do I download the x86 or x64 version and difficult to say, I know, but do you think this type of programme is safe to install?

I have the standard Windows XP Home version.

Set a restore point, then download the 32 bit version,
unless you are running the 64bit version of XP.
I cannot vouch for the programme but i cannot see what harm it is going to do...

Yes I would have gone for the 32bit version, but only x64 and x86 are indicated from their Download link.

this is the link from the first, (not sure what your looking at but the download is clearly 32bit or 64bit (its where red writing is)

Sorry if I am misunderstanding this. But I just exported my bookmarks to my desktop from firefox (bookmarks.html), and then just imported them into IE7. File import/export and followed the wizard.

Thank you both for your replies.

Michael_R - could you spell out the way that you did the export - how do you get the Firefox Bookmarks into an .html file?

  Michael_R 17:09 27 Jan 2007

OK in FF got to
Bookmarks/organise bookmarks, brings up bookmarks screen, goto File/export and up pops a window to export to wherever you want.I suggest your desktop, file will be default name "bookmarks.html" click save

Open IE7 goto file/import,export follow the wizard and click import favorites. browse to your file and click it and follw the rest of the wizard.

Michael_R - Many thanks - I apologise for being so stupid - I kept on trying to Export from the Profile folder and not from Bookmarks.

SANTOS7 - Many thanks again for your help as well.
