Yes, you can export your bookmarks in FF and then import them into IE. I assume you're using a recent edition of FF and IE. First you need to export them from Firefox. You do this by going to bookmarks>organize bookmarks. Then under the file menu select export, then choose the format (HTTP) and location for saving the file. In IE, click the add bookmark button and go to import and follow the directions. I'm using IE 7 with Vista so the proper buttons and location of the command may be a bit different.

Hi computermom08, Welcome to BC.

Seeing as how Microsoft's Internet Explorers have always been so notorious for their security breaches what on earth would make you want to use it exclusively?

If anything at all I would suggest that you have the Internet Explorer7 handy to use on those rare occasions when you just can't use FireFox, but I would by no means recommend that you get rid of FireFox just because Microsoft copied the Tabbed browsing thingy.
