I gather that there is a wway to export FF bookmarkes to IE--if so that's all you need to do since Avant uses the same favorites file as IE.

Just use the import function built into IE and the bookmarks.htm file that Firefox creates.

Better yet... just use the FF extension, "Plain Ol' Favorites", which places a real-time Favorites drop-down on your FF menu.

He can quit using the FF bookmarks totally. :)

Edit: Once he gets them imported, of course. I see your point, Sergei. ;)
