importing favorites did not work

Posted

I followed the instructions from Firefox on how to import my favorites from internet explorer, but it did not work. I got the folder they said I would, but there was only one link in it called "suggested sites"; no other favorites came through.

Try doing it this way.

In IE:
File > Import/Export - Export to HTML file

then in Firefox:
Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup - Import HTML... = From HTML file
