Unable to locate the favorite folder that has all items from MSN browser included in it.  Can locate other favorite folders, but do not have all the url's I will need after leaving MSN and return to using IE.

Greetings, HDRadio !

Do a search for favorites.xml on your computer. Thats what the MSN Explorer favorites file is called. Then go to this website http://www.linkagogo.com/go/Convert?informat=aol&outformat=netscape and convert them to .html format, which you can then import into Firefox from Bookmarks>Manage Bookmarks>File>Import.
You can also try this app, 'MSN Favorites Export Toolkit' from this website http://www.mainsoft.fr/en/downloads.htm

From ... MSN Favorites Export Toolkit' website
Oddly enough, Internet Explorer cannot import your MSN Explorer favorites. This toolkit does the job by transforming the MSN favorites file (favorites.xml) into a Netscape favorites file (bookmark.htm) that is (ironically) suitable for import into IE.
If you don't find favorites.xml on your system:
This file is generally marked as hidden / system. Please set the Search options accordingly when using Windows Explorer to locate this file. It is usually located in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\MSNx\UserData\{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx}, x being replaced with different digits depending on your configuration.
