Import bookmarks, cookies, passcard info?

Import bookmarks, cookies, passcard info?

Import bookmarks, cookies, passcard info?

for reasons unknown, my netscape browser at home lost all my personal profile info usually stored (I think) under documents and settings > username > application data > netscape > profiles, etc., etc.
I lost a lot of needed cookies, (forgotten) passwords, and bookmarks, so I'd like to that that info from my machine at work and import it into my NS browser on my home machine.
What's the best way to do this?
So far, I took the "profiles" folder off of the working machine and overwrote the same folder on the non-working home machine. I was able to import the bookmarks from there and get them back. But just overwriting the "cookies.txt" file didn't make them appear on the second machine, and I don't see how to imort them. Also, I don't know whow to import the "passcard" info, or where that info is stored. I'd appreciate any help...hope this is the right forum.

thanks in advance,
