IE7 - XP I am certain there is no malware or virus or Trojan on the system.

I cannot expand bookmark folders any more.

It was working yesterday -

The bookmarks were successfully exported from Firefox and imported into IE7.

Any thoughts?

Thanks much

If you click the star underneath the back arrow, then favourites centre, then the blue arrow, does it open any of the tabs

Hi Keith

I'm sure it's a problem with importing the bookmarks.

I exported from IE7 and looked at the htm file - it contained folder names but the folders were
empty.

I looked at the html file which I exported from Firefox (and later imported into IE7) and it's fine - folder names and bookmarks all ok.

The strange thing is this was working yesterday in IE7.

If you click favorites, right click a folder, click open, are the shortcuts there, can you click one to open the page then add it as a favourite to the same folder

You could click tools, internet options, delete browsing history, delete all, tick the add ons box, then click the advanced tab, click reset

Problem solved ?


I noticed that Firefox creates a .html file when it exports bookmarks and that
IE7 creates a .htm file.

I renamed Firefox's .html to .htm and re-imported into IE7

It worked (for now)

Thanks much for the help Keith
