    Tbird & Ffox info transfer
    Just got a new iMac and I'm trying to import my Tbird address book and my Ffox bookmarks and need advice. Have opened sharing and imported all of my folders from the old Mac but can't find the address book or the bookmarks folders.
    can anybody help?
    Thanks

    I installed Th'ird on an elderly friend's older iMac and when I opened it for the first time, it (from memory) asked me if I wished to import addresses. When Yes, it prompted me through various relevant files and folders (from OLE), but that was on the same computer.

    Here's a lengthy, Heath Robinson way to import bookmarks:
    Spotlight -> type Firefox -> the first folder listed, which will show Firefox in Users/name/Library/Application Support. Click that folder in S'light.

    When it opens you'll see another folder called Profiles. 2x-click that folder after which you'll get another folder (with a strange name) in which you'll find all your bookmarks showing as html files. Drag each one (hope you haven't got too many) across the FFox icon and then Cmd D to bookmark it.

    I guess the other way is to copy the FFox folder from App Support straight across from the old Mac to the new, parking it in that directory.
