    My current default browser is Netscape 8.1.3. I downloaded and installed Firefox 2.0.0.4 this evening. I attempted to import my Netscape bookmarks and saved passwords, so I clicked on file then import. The only option I was given was to import IE bookmarks & passwords. I thought maybe I had a faulty installation, so I uninstalled and rebooted. I downloaded and reinstalled ... but still no Netscape import option. Can someone help me please?

    I see that in the installed Firefox 2.0.0.4 that I have, there are three import options : IE, Netscape 6, 7 or Mozilla and Opera.

    It sounds as if Firefox won't import Netscape 8 bookmarks & saved passwords??

    Not using the main file menu. You'll have to Export the Netscape bookmarks to a file and then use the Firefox Bookmark Manager to Import them. Bookmarks>Organize Bookmarks>File>Import from file.
    Not sure on the passwords.
