    IIRC there used to be an import option on one of the menus. Its been a few years since I've used Netscape but I think it was in the same place as IEs import option - on the file menu.

    Just had a nosey around Netscape 7 for you, i know it imports IE bookmarks automatically when you first install but it seems they've left out the option to do this at will, which previous versions had.

    i think it also saves the bookmarks into the registry, as Netscape7 is trying to load as fast as possible (IE is built into the Kernal so its unbeatable) - as a result they dumped as much as they could into the registry as thats always cached into RAM already.

    sorry, can't find a way either

    Remove the existing "Imported IE Favorites" folder then re-install over the top. it works, but i can't tell if its changed any settings back to default.

    There is a tool to do it for you - not 100% sure if it supports Netscape 7 as I could not be bothered to read the instructions: -

    hope this helps

    Get Mozilla, it's better and it automatically imports IE "favourites" (ack spit).
