Can I import bookmarks from Firefox into IE?

Well, I downloaded and installed Firefox version 2 the other night. The reason? I hate IE 7 and had nothing but problems with it. I tried different ways of installing it, but still had the same I gave up on IE 7. I had used Firefox for a while a few years ago, then went back to IE 6, which is what I have on my computer now. I have a new computer, one month old. It's a Compaq Presario with Windows XP Media Center 2005 on it.

I was able to import my favorites from IE into Firefox just fine. Now my question is, is it possible to import Bookmarks from Firefox back into IE? Thanks for any help.

Playing favorites: How to control which browser is 'Head Honcho' on your PC
Firefox does not have an Export Wizard. That being said, Bookmarks, which are the equivalent of Internet Explorerís Favorites, can be exported into an Internet Explorer friendly format by using the Bookmark Manager accessed via Bookmarks, Manage Bookmarks. Once within Bookmark Manager, click on File, then Export. Choose a file name, and a destination directory, and then click Save.
Then in IE - File > Import and Export.

Wecome back to Internet Explorer
