Using a PC. Just downloaded Avast Secure Browser and find that my Contacts did not transfer. What should I do?

Hello! To my knowledge FireFox does not hold contacts information. Are you referring to email? or your bookmarks?

Edit: looks like SpywareDr has the link for Bookmarks. :) Some browsers will ask you to import on the first time use.

Kinda figured. My grand daughter has also referred to her bookmarks as contacts.

Before you started using Avast Secure Browser, which browser were you using that your list of websites are called "Bookmarks"?

Regardless of whether your list of websites are called "Favorites" or "Bookmarks", they will need to be imported into your new browser.

That doesn't occur automatically when you install a new browser.

The easiest way to copy bookmarks is (as far as I know), saving them (export) from open browser as html file, then copying them (import) into new browser. Just open Firefox, go to bookmarks, and save the file. (Google 'how to export Firefox bookmarks' for detailed instructions). Then, open Avast browser, and import them. Not a bad idea to resave bookmarks file occasionally for future needs.
