Windows 7: Importing bulk favorites from I.E. to F.F.

Importing bulk favorites from I.E. to F.F.

Need to bring over a library size of favorites from ie. into FF.

I have / can import favorites from i.e. but FF dumps them into a 'from i.e. folder'.

How do I get them to appear as folders & individual links in the 'drop-down bookmarks' menu instead of that extra step where they are all gathered 'first' into a newly created folder called "from internet explorer"??

im not sure how to do the imports as i dont use IE, however there is a good workaround that will back up all your favs and import also.

install xmarks and set up an account free, and when you install xmarks in firefox and ie they will sync. so
first install xmarks for ie, then when the favs have synced then install xmarks for firefox ,when you sign into xmarks in ff the favs will sync to ff.

and you have the added security of knowing that they are backed up on the cloud. also you can log into the xmarks site from a different computer anywhere and still access your favs.

Download Xmarks for Internet Explorer

Download Xmarks for Firefox
