When I import favorites from Internet Explorer, the favorites do not get imported.

The "From Internet Explorer" folder gets created, but no favorites are actually imported.

I have checked the "C:\Users\USERNAME\Favorites" folder to make sure they are there, and they are.

This is a new problem that started with Firefox 15.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

If you can't find the IE favorites in the folder ("From Internet Explorer") or 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 and the favorites won't end up in a "From Internet Explorer" folder, but will be appended at the end of the Bookmarks Menu folder.

  • 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

Thank you.

I had tried to export the favorites from IE, but couldn't find the Export option. I was looking for it on the Favorites menu, when it was actually on the File menu.
