How do I move or copy Firefox Bookmarks to IE favorites?

How do I move or copy Firefox Bookmarks to IE favorites?
1 Solution
Hello cridog,

Here is a program to convert Firefox bookmarks.html to IE7 Favorites.

You can find bookmarks.html in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profilename>\  folder. It is a hidden folder. In Windows XP, open Windows Explorer or any folder.  Click on Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  If you want to see system files as well, unclick Hide protected operating system files.   Click OK.

In Windows Vista,  click on the Start button > Control Panel .  When the Control Panel opens you can either be in Classic View or Control Panel Home view:
A. If you are in the Classic View do the following:
   1. Double-click on the Folder Options icon.
   2. Click on the View tab.
B. If you are in the Control Panel Home view do the following:
   1. Click on the Appearance and Personalization link .
   2. Click on Show Hidden Files or Folders.
   3. Go to step 5.
Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders. Click OK.

Hope this helps!
From Firefox export by selecting Bookmarks->Organize Bookmarks...
In the window that pops up select File->Export  and save the file noting where you do

Then in IE just select File->Import and Export....and follow the prompts from the wizard to import that file you saved.
You will need to use the application listed above if you are using IE 7.0.  There is no import feature in IE 7.0.
