You can import you Internet Explorer bookmarks, passwords, cookies from the File menu of Firefox The bookmarks will get added to a folder in marked "Internet Explorer".

The other option is to import through the Library List ("Ctrl+Shift+B") > Import and Backup > Import > From Internet Explorer. -- This one merges the folders with those you already have.

Make sure you create a bookmarks backup or haven't bookmarked anything since you were at your computer for the day and that the backup exists. Because you may not like the results and may want to restore to the start of the day.
