Does importing bookmarks delete them from other browser?

Posted

Wanted to work around a neo yahoo group glitch - was going to import my bookmarks from IE, but don't want to delete them from IE until I see if this works - so need to know if I import to firefox if it deletes them from IE

Chosen solution

Importing bookmarks from IE does NOT delete your Windows Favorites. They will still appear both in IE and on your Start menu > Favorites folder.
