Win 7 Favorites on Start menu and Firefox

I use Firefox and would like to have the favourites that I use listed on my start menu

Is there a way to do this?

You can create short cuts to your favs, aka google.com and then drag them to your start menu. Or you can just drag them from your bookmarks directly to your start menu which is what I just did

I'm still using IE9 as my primary web browser, but friends have recommended the PlainOldFavorites add-on for Firefox that provides similar capabilities:

you can do the same drag with ie favs but make ff your default browser. I just tried it and it worked.

I would tend to agree with Ve3ofa.  There is at least one viable solution at the author's disposal.

Ve3ofa -

The point is that I want my favourites on the Window 7 menu to show the Fire fox ones.

I do not really want to have to keep opening up Internet Explorer to synchronise them"

you don't have to. you install the ie part and the Firefox xpi and every-time you shutdown Firefox they will sync.
