When you 1st install FireFox, you can import your IE favorites....As I did.

Since then, I have added additional favorites to IE.

Can I now bring them over to FireFox...? Even if it means bringing the entire bunch of IE favorites over again...Which I think would be the case anyway....

How can this be accomplished?

In firefox, you can use File, Import> then it will pop up a new import window. Click Next, and check only what you wish to import, click next to begin import.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

I didn't want to import my favorites because I had many in IE and it would have made my Bookmarks in FF huge. Using this extension really made it nice for me.

PlainOldFavorites is a Mozilla Firefox extension that allows you to use the Internet Explorer and Windows Favorites directly from Firefox.

Now my IE Favorites can be accessed directly from FF which is right next to my Bookmarks in my toolbar.
