    how are they saved? A copy of your favorites directory or the bookmark.html file that IE generates when you export favorites?

    If you still have the folder with all the bookmark files in (not the HTML file) then you can go File > Import > Internet Explorer Favourites and then point it at the folder.

    If you've only got the exported HTML file, then I think that using File > Import > Netscape Bookmarks may work.. but I can't be 100% sure of that.

    best way to get the IE favs is
    Ctrl+Alt+B
    then click the import button and choose Internet Explorer Favourites

    this is pretty much what SPeedY_B said

    The dialog is asking for a folder though, which is how IE stores it's favs (as a bunch of files)
    But what bluzeboy has is an exported HTML file, which is why I said that the netscape method may work..
