Mozilla will only import 10% of the bookmarks from IE Explorer - why?

I tried to import favorites from IE Explorer into Mozilla and only a few of the bookmarks were transferred and I cannot get the rest.

Chosen solution

If there are 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
