I'm trying to get my father to use Mozilla instead of MSN Explorer, and he's interested. Only problem is he has a ton of favorites and Mozilla doesn't seem willing to import them. I think you can get to them in IE, but the problem is Mozilla won't import them... tried to import IE favorites, but it only got a couple. Anyone know how I could do this?

I found MSN Favorites Export Toolkit which converts the MSN favorites file into an IE favorites file. From there it should be easy to convert to Mozilla. There's also this bookmark conversion program that claims to handle MSN and Mozilla, as well as this online bookmark storage site that may allow you to switch formats.

Any reason you're going with the Mozilla Suite over Firefox?

Oh, no. He's going to be using Firefox. I just didn't bother saying that. Although I'm sure he'd be happy if he could get Outlook to get his MSN mail (and I know there's a way which I use, but it just keeps asking for name/pass, I'll see if I can't get it to work).

Have you tried exporting the Explorer favourites to a htm file and importing that with Firefox?
