    I have WindowsXP & IE8

    I have changed to IE8 from Firefox 3 and I tried to transfer
    all my favorites across.

    But somehow these have been duplicated when displayed in the
    IE8 favorites button, that is the favorites from an old
    version of IE have not been updated. Also the favorites
    display very slowly.

    But in Windows Explorer (My Documents\Favorites) all the
    favorites are correct.

    It appears that the old favorites have attached themselves
    to the IE8.

    Please help, Frank

  2. And how did you "transfer all [of your FF] favorites across" to IE?

    cf. http://windowsxp.mvps.org/ie/mozfavexport.htm
