Go to the "Convert bookmark file" web page at http://www.linkagogo.com/go/Convert?informat=msn&outformat=netscape to convert the MSN Explorer file favorites.xml (input format) into a "Netscape (also Mozilla and Firefox)" HTML file (output format) . (If you have problems locating the "favorites.xml" file on your computer, read the "MSN Explorer users" section of the web page and article.) After converting, use "File -> Save Page as" to save the output. You can then import the HTML file you just saved into your Mozilla browser using the "Import from file" feature of the Bookmarks Manager (see above). You can alternately try the MSN Favorites Export Toolkit, available from http://www.mainsoft.fr/en/downloads.htm to convert the MSN Explorer file (favorites.xml) into a Netscape bookmarks file (bookmark.htm) which you can then import into your Mozilla browser (details here).
