I am attempting to import my Favorites from Firefox to IE8 but they don't show in my Favorites list.

I used the "import/export" option in IE8 but they still aren't there.

I looked at using the export option in Firefox but that only will give me a file in my documents.

Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Thank you!

Export your Firefox bookmarks as an HTML file. Then in IE8 you can select to import from that HTML file. See instructions in link below...

Thank you so much! That worked.

I've been using Firefox for the last couple of years because IE7 was so bad so all of my new favorites were there but the last few days it's been taking forever for pages to load (literally about 5 minutes - I think it's a Java error but I don't know how to check) so I downloaded IE8 and it's super quick (now, anyway) and I didn't want to get my favorites one by one.
