    1. I’m having the same problem, it will NOT import any bookmarks from Firefox. Tried all the suggestions I could find on the web and nothing fixes it. IE broke, imagine that.

      1. Same here. I followed the instructions but NONE of my Firefox Bookmarks made it into IE8 despite the box saying Finished. Where do I go from here?

    2. If you’re importing into IE8 from an earlier IE, MS’s own instructions don’t work. Duhhhh. Do the following:
      File
      Import & Export
      Import from a File
      Next
      Choose Favorites or Feeds
      Next
      It should now pick up the file automatically in My Documents. If not, browse to find it.
      Next
      Will take a few seconds — when box disappears, you’re done

  1. Nope, doesn’t work. The option to import from other browsers is greyed out – and I have Firefox installed in the default directory.

    I’m finding Firefox is running very slowly since the latest release, so I’d like to go back to IE, but if I can’t import my bookmarks, it’s a bit pointless.

  2. I tried several times. Firefox to IE8. It says Bookmarks were imported but if that’s true, I’d like to know where to find them because they’re not under Favorites.
