Is there a way to import my favorites from Mozilla?
Thanks

There was a bug in earlier versions of Avant with the Import/Export function, so it was removed... which probably led to it not being currently included in Orca.

Importing them into IE will make them appear in Orca, too, as they use the same Favorites.

I thought Orca uses Mozzila and not IE as its engine. Please reply I'm very curious.
Thank you.

It does, Orca just uses the same folder that IE stores its favorites in. I guess the developer figured most orca users would be previous Avant users so why not pull its favs from the same location.

That is not the case. I do not have Orca installed but I assume that there is an import function in Orca. What you will need to do is export your bookmarks in Mozilla, then import them into Orca.
Now, I am also not so familiar wiht Mozilla, but in Firefox you need to go to Manage Bookmarks. Once that window open go to File>>Export
This will save your bookmarks in a html file. from here you will be able to import these into Orca or Avant.
I am sorry that I can give more detail info, but I can't right now. If you need more help, let me know and I will give you more detail information.

There is no import function in Orca, so if you can't find it, you're not missing anything... unless, of course, I'm missing something.

Actually, like Avant, Orca lacks an import function of its own. After you have exported your Mozilla favorites as an html file, you can import that file into IE. Once in IE, the favorites will also be available in Orca (or Avant).

Yeah, I was drunk at the time I wrote that. I should have thought better.
