Do you have a folder named From Internet Explorer in Bookmarks?

Question owner

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.
In IE:
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. :)

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

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.
