That sentence doesn't make sense.

Have you tried Bookmarks, Organize Bookmarks, Import and Backup button? From that same area you can export the bookmarks as HTML, save them anywhere, then have IE import them.

MozBackup... neat utility...

that backs up all Firefox bookmarks, settings, etc. It can be downloaded at http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/download.php and is free. A simple restore of the backup will put you right back were you were... saves lots of time figuring out your previous settings.

I find it useful in case the browser is lost, becomes corrupt or a re-install of the operating system is needed. Just a suggestion... been used by me for years and never let me down.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
