Firefox only imports half my favorites from IE

when I try to import my favorites from internet explorer, only half of my favorites (a-m) are transferred. Is there any way to increase the capacity of the folder?

Re: Firefox only imports half my favorites from IE

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: From File
