I am installing Firefox on my desktop. When I try to import my bookmarks from windows XP Internet Explorer 7 I get a message that say Firefox is no longer working. I have limited computer experience so I really don't know how to approach this problem. I tried the help page suggestions, i.e, restart with add-ons disabled with no success. Please help a senior citizen! I used Foxfire successfully on another machine. Thanks Jim
