After switching from Inteernet Explorer 8.0 to Firefox, I have no access to my Why didn't Firefox sync my Favoites List from Internet Explorer 8.0?


I recently added Firefox as a second browser to the Internet Explorer 8.0 that I have been using. During the download of the Firefox browser, I thought it was transferring my Favorites List of most frequently visited websites. I cannot find this list anywhere when I use the Firefox browser. to access the list I must use IE 8.0. Please advise because i rely on access to this list in my daily work.

I had the same problem, but it's really easy to fix. Under the drop-down file menu, go to Import and you'll be prompted to import all your Internet Explorer favourites. When it's finished, under your Downloads tab, they will show up on the left side as "From Internet Explorer". I hope this helps.

Helpful Reply

I completed all the actions Donna suggested, but there is no Download tab visible anywhere on my screen and I still can't find my IE 8.0 Favorites. Since I am new to the Firefox browser, I may be looking in the wrong place. Please, advise.

Thank you, Tim
