I have followed the instructions to import my cookies, favorites, etc. from I.E. 8. The results are only about half of my favorites are imported.

I followed the instructions in the initial setup. When I add favorites by copying them from IE8 to firefox, it says they have been added, but when i look in the folder where they were placed, they are not there. How do I "fix" this problem? Thanks in advance for your quick response.

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
