Can I transfer my list of favourites from Windows Internet Explorer?

Posted

The list of "Favourites" which I have accumulated on Windows Internet Explorer is extremely useful but I haven't found a way of transferring it to Firefox. Can you help?

Hi slimbo,

Importing all of your favorites from Internet Explorer is actually quite easy. Just take a look at the Knowledge Base article Import Bookmarks from Internet Explorer. It should have all the information you need.

Hopefully this helps!

mdwood45, (and anyone else)

If "Import Data from Another Browser" is greyed out, this can happen if you are in Private Browsing - Browse the web without saving information about the sites you visit mode. Turn off that feature and try again.

If you need more help and you cannot find the answer in the Import Bookmarks from Internet Explorer article, please start a new thread. You can use this link as a starting point: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new

Since the thread owner has marked the issue as "solved" I'm locking this thread.
