If you have 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.
That way you also preserve any sorting that you may have done in IE with the Favorites and the favorites won't end up in a "From Internet Explorer" folder, but will be appended at the end of the Bookmarks Menu folder.
- 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 HTML: From File
See "Import from another browser" and "Import from file":
In the "Chosen Solution" above it says "That way you also preserve any sorting that you may have done in IE with the Favorites". I have followed this procedure and I get all of my favorites, but they are not in the order I have them in IE. I have a lot of bookmarks and I am able to find the one I am looking for quickly because I have put them into a sensible order. I need the bookmarks from IE to be in that same order. Am I doing something wrong? BTW, I am using Firefox 16.0.2. Thanks for any help you can provide.
