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.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
