    Most GOOD browsers allow the importing of the Favorites from a HTML file. So, FF may allow you to do this. You can export your favorites from within IE to a HTML file.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 26-Jan-07 11:13. )</P>When you first install Firefox, it asks you if you would like to import your Favorites. If that didn't happen, try File>Import in Firefox to see whether it picks them up. Problem is, with that many, how can you be sure?? As a backup, use File>Export in IE to save all your favorites as a Firefox-compatible HTML file.

    Edit: Oh, I think I misread your question. You need ongoing synchronization. I think there must be products that do it, but I'm not aware of any.

    There are lots of bookmark managers out there. Sync2It <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> - 2.2MB sounds appropriate for the task:

    "BookmarkSync keeps your favorites synchronized on all your machines, but we also do it between all your browsers and even across operating systems! Run the auto-sync client once and forget it. It will silently keep all of your favorites in sync no matter which browser you want to use. Of course we have all the social stuff too - RSS feeds, shared collections and the rest. Try BookmarkSync today, you

    Does the IE Favorites menu show non-URL shortcuts? That's strange. I guess it's because the browser is integrated into the OS rather than just being a web browser.
