There is NOT "Favorites" in firefox, only bookmarks(it is the same), favorites you can find in IE.

If you want to access the folder where bookmarks are click the Start button(in windows) and type: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ then see Profiles for more info.

If you want to import favorites from Internet Explorer see: Importing favorites and other data from Internet Explorer

see also : Import bookmarks

thank you

PlainOldFavorites addon
Use Windows and Internet Explorer Favorites directly from Firefox. No need to import, export or synchronize - the same Favorites appear everywhere.
