    Hi,

    I hate firefox since the update and do not want to go back to internet explorer. Opera and google chrome seem to be the other quality browsers out there. I installed them to try but I can't seem to find my bookmarks on my PC. All the import buttons seem to be gone from IE as I was going to try to import them there and then find them. Thanks for any help in my search. Oh and I am an XP user.

    What exactly is it that you hate about firefox 4? If it is the new chrome like GUI, for example, this can be easily overcome by simply turning the menu bar on. Why not see if your problem can be over come first before jumping ship?

    I made my invisible folders visible and got as far as you said. There was a default folder and a bookmarkbackups folder after that with some sort of .json files. Still no bookmark files, at least not that opera can read.

    @xplorer4 - Well, not sure the aesthetics are a big part of it I guess. Other than that I am getting popups from certain sites now since the update too. I guess I could get used to it but wouldn't mind trying out these other browsers. Reminds me of Vista which I haven't been a fan of, but I don't own that either.

    hold ctrl+shift+b all together this will bring you to you bookmarks "library" then from there choose the import and backup tab at the top then click export html save the file where you want it, you should then be able to import in the other browser, or just use xmarks which is an amazing tool you should honestly look into its available for firefox, safari, IE, and chrome. Here it is. Click here to view xmarks website and get the add on.
