I suspect you need to sync Opera Mobile to a desktop PC, then export/import to get into Firefox. The reason I suspect this is the enhanced security and limited features on mobile browsers .

Thank you so much for the quick reply. That's the most logical solution, and if I had a functioning brain I might have actually thought of it myself! Thank goodness there are those out there like you who DO have brains and are willing to help those of us who are caught a bit short occasionally. The links you provided are also invaluable and will save my having to search them out myself. Thanks again.
