I imported my IE Favorites into my Firefox browser. Since I've moved, and am using another I needed to get my Firefox Favorites from the old PC to my new one. What I did was save my Favorites into an HTML document onto my desktop on the old PC (it opens in Firefox)

I sent an email attachment to myself by using the Favorites that are on the old PC's desktop as the attachment. On the new PC, I can open the Favorites in Firefox (good so far), but I'm having difficulty importing them into my current Firefox Favorites list on the new PC. Any suggestions?

Check to see that you followed these instructions:

You can also import bookmarks files from other sources. For example, you can import bookmarks files from earlier Mozilla versions, other browsers, or from bookmark files that your friends send you.

Before you start, make sure that the bookmark file you want to import is an HTML file.

1. Open the Bookmarks menu and choose Manage Bookmarks.
2. In your Bookmarks window, open the Tools menu and choose Import.
3. In the "Import bookmark file" dialog box, locate and select the bookmark file you want to import.
4. Click Save.

The imported bookmark file is treated as a group of new bookmarks and added to the bottom of your bookmarks list. If you have designated a new bookmark folder, the imported bookmarks are added to that folder.

Note: Importing a bookmark file imports the bookmarks and folders from that file. It does not create two bookmark files.

Hope this helps.
