Many thanks Cor-el this will no doubt help in future I have saved all your instructions and will definitely use them if I ever have a problem in future -by the way if you want a real good laugh at my expense then here's what I did I clicked on every book mark in turn from the list in my old computer and I systematically copied each url into a word document then having done this with all 143 bookmarks I proceeded to paste them one at a time into my new Firefox browser on my new computer and saved each one -actually didn’t take that long as I could load about 5 at a time by the way using Firefox 3.6.2 don’t like 4 for some reason I cant explain . Once again thanks!
