Yesterday I installed Firefox on all the accounts on my computer. I come home to day to find my mother irate about how all here bookmarks are gone when she tried to use IE. How can I get the bookmarks from her old sbcyahoo account on IE over to FF. I really need to do this or she won't let me keep and use FF, and then I'm stuck with crappy IE. Someone plz help!

Hi Golden Warrior & welcome to the forum.
Installing Firefox should not affect IE favourites at all, very strange.

IE saves the Favourites for each user account here:
C:\Documents & Settings\[account name]\Favourites

Get your mum to log on to her account and check there. If the folder is empty it may already be too late to fix.
Ask her to do a search for Favorites, as there may be backup of it somewhere.

You may be able to import them directly into Firefox.

Open Firefox > bookmarks > organise bookmarks > file > import.

There you can either take them directly from IE, or File where they are stored..
