Importing Favorites from FireFox
Installed firefox about 6 months ago, and it imported all my favorites from
IE, but apparently erased them. I wish to restore the favorites to IE and go
back to it as my sole browser. Any ideas as to how i can restore the
favorites?

Never known THAT before - are you SURE?
Have you checked in Windows Explorer that your Favorites folder is indeed
empty?

In FF do Bookmarks-Manage Bookmarks-Export as HTML.

Windows version? IE version? Are you sure your IE bookmarks (Favorites)
have been "erased"?

Shouldn't you be asking this in a Firefox forum?
E.g. does Firefox have an export to IE facility?
If so, that's what I would use.
