FF asked if I wanted to import my favourites folders, I said yes. But nothing? I have looked in bookmarks but nothing is there?

Do you have a folder named From Internet Explorer in Bookmarks?
No I don't should I?
That's where the IE Favorites would be located if they were imported.
Try doing it this way - which will merge the IE Favorites with any existing Firefox bookmarks.
File > Import/Export - Export to HTML file
then in Firefox:
Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks -> Import & Backup - Import HTML... = From HTML file
Thank you that's solved that problem. :)

I also have the same problem, although my imports should have been from igoogle.....where is 'file' in igoogle???!! (sorry if I'm being dense?!)
Followed instructions and got "Bookmarks" but what I was trying to import from IE is Favorites; all the YouTube, Travel, OU sites that I have saved for quick return
That last one from me should probably have said "saved pages" rather than sites
I have the same problem, in one answer it is said "then in Firefox: Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks -> Import & Backup" ... I dont even have "Organize Bookmarks " under "Bookmarks" ... I am usinf Windows 7 64bit version
martinstalter -- If you are using FF 4, it's now called "Show All Bookmarks" instead of "Organize Bookmarks.
brianfowler -- In IE, it is called "Favorites", in Firefox, it is called "Bookmarks". They are the same thing.
