Moving from Firefox to IE8
I used Firefox for web browsing till Windows 7 released and IE8 seems very
smooth and improved.
The problem is how to import my history and saved passwords to IE from
Firefox? I can't find any option to import these to IE. As I noted only
bookmarks and feeds can be imported.
My history and passwords are too important to me.

Re: Moving from Firefox to IE8
Hi,
I don't think you will be able to export/import history or passwords.

I would access saved passwords in Firefox (Tools> Options> Saved passwords)
and login to each of those sites with IE8.

Also, you should have login data backed up to a text, doc or other file and
stored in a secure location on a CD, DVD, external HD, online (secure)
storage site or even a piece of paper. Loss of data happens. ;-)

For Windows 7 this information should help:
Store passwords, certificates, and other credentials for automatic logon:

Saving Remote Desktop credentials in Home and Pro versions.:

Hope this helps,
