What do you mean by Favorite? Are you talking about bookmarks?

Hit Ctrl+Shift+B which will bring up you bookmark organizer.....

If you look across the top of the browser were "File" is you will see "Bookmarks"

IE has favorites

Firefox has bookmarks

Hello bt1942,

Bookmarks, as you call them Favorites, are stored in one file, bookmarks.html.  It is stored in Profile folder.

C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles\\ folder. It is a hidden folder, so you have to unhide hidden folders. In Windows XP, open Windows Explorer or any folder.  Click on Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  If you want to see system files as well, uncheck Hide protected operating system files.   Click OK.

In Windows Vista, open Windows Explorer or any folder. Click the Layout button (to the left of the Views button). Click Folder Options > View tab. Check "Show hidden files and folders".   Click OK

Hope this helps!
