I installed Firefox and it asked me to import my Favorites from Internet Explorer to Firefox Bookmarks, which I did. However, it only imported A-N and not O-Z for some reason.
 
I've looked in the tools/options and can not find a way to import them again. I also went to the Program Files folder for Firefox and browsed all the folders and did not see the Bookmarks there either.
 
Is there a way to restart the import feature or a way to manually copy them from the Favorites to Bookmarks folder?

Have you tried to export these from IE?

No, I know how to do that, but it exports them to an html file and I don't know how to get that imported to Firefox.

That is for export, I know how to do that, I need to import the I.E. favorites into the Firebox bookmarks.

 

Where it says:

- Click on Bookmarks and then select +Organize Bookmarks...+

 

When I click on Bookmarks in Firefox, there is no "Organize Bookmarks".
