    i've amassed quite a few favourites throughout the year, and i want to burn them to a CD so i don't lose them. i have done this on PC, there is a seperate Favourites folder with all the other IE stuff. is this the same on Mac? how should i go about finding and backing up the IE favourites?

    OS9 - There is a folder in the prefs folder that is something like "Internet Explorer Preferences ƒ" just backup that folder

    OSX - Go to the Library ƒ in your user area and then the folder "Preferences" and then backup the file Explorer.

    Hope this helps :) Nice and Simple
