Hiya guys/Gareth

What's the difference between IE and Firefox?

It seems faster anyway.

We have IE ususally, and I use MSN explorer for email, fav's etc.  Is there any way I can get my favs from explorer to firefox?  I know they can import from IE but I don't have them saved there.

There's a way, just not an easy way :)  You can find more info here http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=1684965

When you're a little more familiar with Firefox you can start adding extensions to make it more personal :)  The ones I currently have in use are Siteadvisor, Adblock Plus and Performancing... https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/recommended/

LOL appreciate your honesty!!  ;)

It might be easier to just copy and paste them  ::)

I like using Explorer as I can just click on the mail button and go right to my email.  So lazy. 

Gonna have a look around the extensions later on (tomorrow!) and see what they are like.  Loving being able to use the quote button!

I use firefox as my browser and I love being able to have one internet page open, but I can open new pages in tabs.

Firefox call their "favorites' bookmarks - I am not sure if there is anyway to move your IE ones to Fire Fox ::) I have never been able to find a bookmarks folder on my pC or mac, it was fine with IE and favourites because it created a folder on your PC. 

Saying that I never have time to look.  :-\
