Firefox, Maxthon, and Favorites

by Bractals / November 20, 2004 2:36 PM PST

Hi all, I like to switch between Maxthon and Firefox. But, I noticed a funny thing happening to my favorites ( bookmarks ). I imported, I think, favorites into Firefox.

Here is is what is going on: 1) I enter Maxthon and add link L1 and delete link L2 from my favorites, 2) I exit Maxthon and re-enter Maxthon and sure enough link L1 has been added and link L2 has been deleted, 3) I exit Maxthon and enter Firefox and do nothing to the bookmarks, 4) I exit Firefox and enter Maxthon and link L1 is missing and link L2 is back in my favorites.

Can anybody explain this and how do I work around it?
