When importing from IE 9 or IE 11 only some bookmarks are imported. Why?

The format for bookmarks that are imported has bookmark folders alphabetized with individual bookmarks. Desire bookmark folders to be grouped before individual bookmarks.

Chosen solution

If there are problems with importing the IE Favorites in Firefox then export the favorites in IE to an HTML file and import that file in the Firefox Bookmarks Manager.

If you do not have the menu bar in IE then right-click the toolbar at the top to enable the Menu Bar.

  • Export the favorites in IE to an HTML file (bookmarks.html):
    File > Import and Export
  • Import the HTML file in Firefox:
    Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks > Import & Backup > Import Bookmarks from HTML
