Can I automate import of favorites?
I'm writing a powershell script to automate the process of configuring
machines. I've found a means that I can automatically set the home page, but
I'd also like to include a bunch of favorites as well.

I'm sure there is a way that this can be done, can anyone point me in the
general direction? The past 5-10 minutes search has only turned up how to do
this from within the GUI (or importing to other browsers).
