I installed Firefox just recently and when viewing my favorites it did not import all of them from IE8. I tried to manually import them and it goes through the motions as if it is importing but it never brings over all my favorites list.

If I dont get an answer in two days, I will simply delete firefox and go back to IE.

Chosen solution

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.

If you do not have the menu bar in IE then right-click the toolbar at the top to enable the Menu Bar.

  • 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 Bookmarks from HTML
