Able to import bookmarks from Internet Explorer 9 with the exception of most important group, "Favorites Bar." Can I not import this?
"Jesse's Favorites Folder" was imported, as was "Favorites Bar II". but "Favorites Bar" (which appears very coveniently in IE9 as a ribbon across the top of the page) is not there.
Interestingly, one of the Bookmarks that I now see in Firefox is called "Links". This has elements of what "Favorites Bar" had, but is not the same (or even an adequate replacement).

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.
- 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
