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!
Thanks very much Matt_G. It worked a treat.
But Import form another browser is greyed out and does not work!
mdwood45, (and anyone else)
If "Import Data from Another Browser" is greyed out, this can happen if you are in Private Browsing - Control what information Firefox saves 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.
