Windows 7: Firefox Favorites

Firefox Favorites

This is probably a stupid question but here goes:

When I installed Firefox, some of my favorites from IE were copied over from IE, but NOT all of them.

I have done a search for Favorites in Firefox like the ones I can see in IE (in the user files) but the search finds nothing.

Is there anyway I can copy the favorites I want from IE into Firefox.

export from ie import into firefox, it's not teribbly complex. I'm pretty sure you have to fully open the bookmark manager to access the feature in either of them though.
Export as html. It's the best way.

Go to IE under "File" and you will see "Import & Export" and just follow the instructions to export a .htm file to your desktop. Then go into Firefox and follow this

If you follow bigmck's advice, I would delete all from FF prior to importing them as you will get duplicates.
