just installed firefox but cannot find my favourites

FF asked if I wanted to import my favourites folders, I said yes. But nothing? I have looked in bookmarks but nothing is there?

Do you have a folder named From Internet Explorer in Bookmarks?

No I don't should I?

That's where the IE Favorites would be located if they were imported.

Try doing it this way - which will merge the IE Favorites with any existing Firefox bookmarks.
In IE:
File > Import/Export - Export to HTML file
then in Firefox:
Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks -> Import & Backup - Import HTML... = From HTML file

I also have the same problem, although my imports should have been from igoogle.....where is 'file' in igoogle???!! (sorry if I'm being dense?!)

Followed instructions and got "Bookmarks" but what I was trying to import from IE is Favorites; all the YouTube, Travel, OU sites that I have saved for quick return

That last one from me should probably have said "saved pages" rather than sites
