|If you've just installed Firefox and the IE links have not transferred then you have probably missed the boat somehow, so they will have to be put in manually. I am assuming that by "Links" you mean the buttons you can put along the top which are single click to websites. If so:|
In IE the old links bar is now known as the "Favorites bar".
In Firefox this is called the "Bookmarks Toolbar". When you are on a Website you save as a bookmark then select Bookmarks Toolbar. You obviously have to first right click under the title bar and ensure there is a tick in Bookmarks Toolbar.
If you want to copy them from IE you can go to each website and Copy/Paste from IE's address bar to FF. Alternatively you can get the URL's from IE by right clicking the buttons, right click Properties and copy/paste the URL into FF address bar. In fact it is possible to do this without actually going to each website from FF, using "Organize Bookmarks" but it would take a lot of explaining. You should be able to work it out. The proper icons will not appear until you have visited the websites.
I don't think this is a Vista issue. I have Firefox in both XP and Vista and it works just the same way.
We all live on a ball.
