Hi, I downloaded the Foxfire browser from Mozilla, and it asked if I wanted to "Import" all of my stuff from my current browser.

If I import things from my old browser is that the same thing as moving a file from one place to another, or is it just copying stuff from one browser to another?
Thanks Wendy

Hi Wendy

It's 'Firefox' actually, not Foxfire!
Importing stuff just copies it into Firefox. What you import will still be left in place in Internet Explorer.

Be aware that, as good as Firefox is, some websites won't display properly (those that use Microsofts own version of HTML rather than the standard), and some plug-ins require a bit of manual work (Realplayer, Flash etc) whereas in IE the plugins set themselves up automatically. The biggest 'pull' Firefox has is having 'tabbed' browser pages, updates are more frequent than IE, and it's less prone to browser hijacking. The latter may well change as Firefox becomes more popular though.

:tazz: Hi pip22 Thanks *looking in mirror for blond hair* I did kind of get it bass ackwards didn't I! Thanks for answering my question. I didn't want to import everything if it was going to clean out my IE browser.

My problem is solved, I guess that this thread can be closed now. Thanks again, Bye Wendy
