    website favorites

    I have just recently switched over to Mac yesterday, and I am using FireFox for my internet explorer. I will never look back. My question is:

    On my PC, I saved all my favorite websites in "my favorites"

    Is there an equivalent on my mac? If so, how do I save my favorite websites?

    Thank you

    They are called Bookmarks on Firefox (as well as Safari).

    You can check out this page that contains a lot of info on bookmarks and Firefox (I don't currently have FF on this particular computer, so I can't give accurate directions on using bookmarks in FF)

    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)

    Yeah, I'm not sure why Explorer ever called them favorites. Every other browser calls the "Bookmarks". Oh, and by the way: just a correction of terminology...Firefox is NOT an "Internet Explorer". Internet Explorer is Microsoft's Web Browser. Firefox and Safari (and numerous others) are also Web Browsers. I know that's no big deal, but just thought I'd correct you on that
