Hello Rik,

You could pin the "Favorites Center" itself on the left side if you like, but there hasn't been a way to move the Star (favorites) icon to the left yet.

You can also open Favorites on the Menu bar in IE9 to see your favorite websites on the left.

Hope this helps some,

And, fyi, You can pin the favorites center to the left, and it will stay there as long as you don't close the center. You can close and reopen the browser and it will still be on the left. Closing the favorites center will reset it's position next time you open your favorites.

I don't rely so much on them, but since the favorites only take up an inch or so on my screen when I pin it to the left, I just never close it.
