    WinXP & IE6 stores them in a subfolder of Documents & Settings. I've looked
    in the obvious places in Program Files for the Mozilla favorites so I can
    more conveniently rearrange and edit them. No luck so far. Suggestions

    Mozilla stores its bookmarks, preferences, Mail, address book,
    settings, etc, in a directory called your Profile. Only IE uses
    Favorites whereas Mozilla's are called bookmarks, and they are all
    stored within one file called bookmarks.html. This file can be edited
    with any html editor.

    I don't know which Program you're using, Mozilla the Suite, or Mozilla
    Firefox, but to find your Mozilla the Suite's Profile see this:

    And to find your Firefox Profile see this:

    One important note: Your Profile is hidden. To find out how to
    unhide window files, then see this:

    Good luck!!!!

    Why did you go look in the "program files" bookmarks aren't program
    files, they are user "documents & settings".

    Bookmarks aren't stored as sepperate files like ie's, but are stored in
    a html file. So editing them the way you want is more complex than
    desired and needed.

    What is wrong with the "manage bookmarks" item in the "bookmars" menu?
    It probably does everything you want and more.

    Where mozilla firefox favorites are store

    Mozilla firefox favorites are stored as html file. For WinXP and Vista check "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile" folder then open the file named bookmarks.html to see you favourites.
