  2. Which version of Netscape?

    In NC4.x, the bookmarks file is called bookmark.htm. Copy it, paste it
    into your FIrefox prfoile folder. Dlete the existing bookmarks.html,
    (or better, rename it to bookmarks.old, just in case) and rename your
    Netscape bookmarks to bookmarks.html.

    In Netscape 6 and up, the bookmarks file is already called
    bookmarks.html. You can copy it, and paste it in, letting it overwrite
    the existing bookmarks fokder, or, rename the existing foder as above,
    before pasting.

    My old browser is Netscape 4.79.

    Please excuse my ignorance Lee, but I have not been able to find a
    Firefox profile folder on Drive D, where I have Firefox, or on Drive C.

    Got it in Bookmarks/Manage Bookmarks/Import.

    Thanks Lee.

  5. Your UA indicates TB, which, stupidly does not indicate the OS, other
    then windows.

    In 98/ME, C:\Windows\Application Data\Phoenix\

    In NT/XP, C:\Documents & Settings\(username)\Application Data\Phoenix\

    The original name for the standalone browser was Phoenix.
    Since many folks, like myself, began testing it when it was named that,
    they left the profile information in the old folder, rather then
    invalidate our profiles.
