You can usually find the imported IE Favorites in a folder ("From Internet Explorer") at the bottom of the Bookmarks Menu folder (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks).
If you have problems with importing the IE Favorites in Firefox then export the Favorites in IE to an HTML file and import that file in the Firefox Bookmarks Manager.<br />
That way you also preserve any sorting that you may have done in IE with the Favorites.

  • I imported my favorites from Internet Explorer but I need to know how to display my "favorites" in the tool bar so I can access and organize them

    I imported my favorites from Internet Explorer, but how do I display "favorites" in the tool bar so I can access and organize them?

    It did merge them after a fashion, glad I took a backup first even if I did only perhaps create 3 or 4 bookmarks today. So if I have bookmark separators, it's going to figure out which group to put them in (no way). Anyway I thought they would just go down to the bottom of the bookmarks menu like the other method, like when I export and import bookmarks in Firefox where they do go to the end of the Bookmarks Menu folder and would simply delete one folder.
    Anyway this would not be typical because I don't want any bookmarks from IE.

  • I have followed instructions for importing favorites from Internet Explorer, but they do not show up in Bookmarks menu as shown in the support instructions.

    I just downloaded Firefox 3.6 and followed the instructions for importing Favorites from Internet Explorer. Firefox said the import was successful, but the Favorites do not appear at the bottom of the Bookmarks menu (below "Mozilla Firefox") as shown in the Support instructions. Where can I access my Favorites?

    If you can't find them in the "From Internet Explorer" folder then try this:

  • How do I get Firefox to import ALL my bookmarks from Internet Explorer?

    I've recently installed Firefox on my WXP computer, to replace IE. During installation, Firefox automatically put up a dialog offering to import all my bookmarks (i.e. Favourites) from IE, and I accepted. The resulting page confirmed that my bookmarks had been imported. However, on looking at the actual list of bookmarks "Imported from IE", I saw that the main Favourite headings had been imported in alphabetical order - which is fine - but that the import had stopped at the letter S. That meant that some important main Favourite headings (e.g. "Travel") hadn't been imported.
    I then went to your tutorial pages and followed the instructions for "Importing Personal Data from Other Browsers", asking for just bookmarks to be imported from IE. What happened was that once again, FF imported only the Favourite titles up to initial S. (And now, furthermore, all the imported ones were duplicates of the ones already imported at set-up). Would you tell me, please, what I need to do to get the complete list of Favourites imported from IE?
    Thanks a lot.
    Ian Stewart

  • I have Windows Vista. I have tried to import my favorites from Internet Explorer but it won't import it just says it has stop functioning & will send report to Microsoft.

    I have a lap top with Windows 7 & I was able to import my favs with no problem, so wondering if it is the Vista that is doing it

    It usually works better if you export the Favorites in IE to an HTML file and import that file in the Firefox Bookmarks Manager.

  • Firefox will not import all of the favorites from Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 8.1 64-bit OS!

    There is another post about this problem in the forum, but the answer does not work. This is the first time I've ever encountered this problem when installing/using Firefox on my desktop PC. I have a new (3/25/14) Dell XPS 8700 desktop tower with Windows 8.1 64-bit (and now Update 1) installed, along with Internet Explorer 11. I previously had a 2005 Dell Dimension 5100 desktop tower running XP Pro SP3 32-bit, which never had any issues running Firefox, but has since died. I used to run Firefox as my default browser, but not any longer. Now, during the install process, Firefox asks if you want to import from Internet Explorer, as it has always done before. I chose yes, and it reported that it pulled everything in from IE. However, it only imported my favorites folders whose names start with a numeral, and then A, B, and onward down the alphabet, but it doesn't import anything more after getting to the folders whose names start with E. So, all of my remaining Favorites folders whose names start with F, G, and forward down the alphabet from there are all absent from Firefox's Bookmarks. I also tried importing the favorites after installing Firefox, which I don't prefer since Firefox installs a folder called Internet Explorer to go to first to get to your favorites. However, still, Firefox only brought in my favorites folders from A to E, and stopped there again. I do not see any way to export my favorites from Internet Explorer (there is no import/export option under favorites, nor anywhere else in IE 11). Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox resulted in the same problem, even after making sure to delete my settings, etc., in the process. Please update Firefox's installation executable so it's able to import ALL of Internet Explorer 11's favorites folders and their contents, complete, as it has always done before. Please contact me when the corrected executable to install Firefox properly is ready for download. Thank you.

    If there are problems with importing the IE Favorites in Firefox then export the favorites in IE to an HTML file and import that file in the Firefox Bookmarks Manager.
    If you do not have the menu bar in IE then right-click the toolbar at the top to enable the Menu Bar.

  • When I go through the 'import favorites' from Internet Explorer, everything seems to progress correctly. However, when I click on Bokkmarks, there is no option in the menu for accessing the imported items form EI. Is there a fix for this?

    Hello Nigel.
    Are you sure the Bookmarks you important are nowhere to be found? They should be stored in your bookmark manager, somewhere. To access the bookmark manager, go into ''Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks...''. Try searching there.
    You can change their place from there too.

    Or just sync to google from your HTC and export to a vcf file. After that login to icloud.com and there you can import the vcf. And now you just have to setup the icloud on your iPhone.

  • Microsoft adcenter ad titles appear in internet explorer but not in firefox in English

    Microsoft adcenter ad titles appear in internet explorer but not in firefox in English
    Tried Microsoft help but so far unable to identify problem.
    Thought it might be connected to java but removal of java makes no difference
    Starting in safe mode resolves problem but about 500 add ons suspected

    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.<br />
    You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.<br />
    You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]
    * If you have many extensions then you can first enable half of the extensions to test which half has the problem.
    Continue to divide the bad half that still has the issue until you find which one is causing it.

    A possible cause is a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.
