    Anyone know how to move my bookmarks from my PC to my new Mac?
    I can't seem to come up with anything. Any help would be appreciated.

    Bookmarks in Firefox are stored as bookmarks.html on Windows and OSX. Just copy the file over.

    Windows location: C:\Documents and Settings\[Windows Username]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[Random letters].default\

    OS X location: ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[Random letters].default/

    GoTo

    Firefox Bookmarks>organise bookmarks. Then File>EXPORT from that window. It will be a html file. Email it to yourself, or stick it on a thumb drive or whatever.

    Then in either Safari or Firefox on your Mac, IMPORT the html file into Bookmarks. Done.

    If you want saved passwords and etc moved over, just move the whole profile over, using the same paths that edesignuk designated.
