I don't see a way in IE to export (or save) Favorites to a file, so it doesn't seem possible to import them into Firefox as a file.
However, IE's favorites are stored in a folder in Windows Explorer at C/Documents and Settings/Username/Favorites
So, if you can load your old favorite files from the disk into this folder, (including any sub-folders if you have any), then they should show up in IE when you next open it up.
In that way, you can re-import the IE favorites into FIrefox, but to avoid duplication you may have to delete the exisiting IE imported favorites before importing the new list.
Hope this helps
I know how to import the IE bookmarks by the automated file transfer discussed earlier.What I would like to know is that at times I want to import prior bookmark lists which are diff. than those in the current IE OS and which I have stored as files on a disk,such as(a:),these are the files I want to import and use in Firefox.The Firefox popup transfer menu only shows the transfer of the current IE bookmark mark files and as far as I can see gives no other option for transferring in other bookmark lists from other sources--Thanx Gerald
