Export from IE and import to Firefox after you copy the file to your Firefox folder.

Where are the favorites saved, that is my first problem getting them off of my work computer onto a disk so they are usable else where. I guess I am IE incompatent.

Open IE click file "upper left" Click Import/Export if the wizard pops up click next then select Export Favorites click next and then your going to Export to a file or address, click browse and choose where you want to Export the Favorites "burner, USB media, floppy drive"

Good luck....

Yes, as PierBridge says and then in Firefox, click on Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks... then a new window will open. Then in the new window click on File > Import... and select "From file" option. Then you will have to navigate to where you saved the IE export file and select it as the file/bookmarks to import.

Thanks for the tips everyone. I never even thought of using my bookmark settings from computer to computer. I've always just recreated them. Now I can do it the easy way grin.gif.

I usually export my fav's to my desktop every month or two and then email them to myself. It's a good way of keeping them in case my computer would go down.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.
