IE Favorites are not imported properly if no profile exists. This is Mac only. Steps: 1. Rename ~/Library/Mozilla to another. 2. Launch Mozilla. Actual results: - "Imported IE Favorites" is "(empty)". - "IE Favorites Folders" are imported to the top level of Mozilla Bookmarks. - Other "IE Favorites" are not imported. Confirming with 2003043003 and 2003050908/MacOS 10.2.5.
this sounds like bug 176715, but that doesn't jive with 5/9-08 showing the problem
Hmm... On Mac, IE Favorites are not imported at all when creating a new profile. It seems that Mach-O build has this problem from long time ago. Changing the summary.
Summary: IE Favorites are not imported properly if no profile exists → [Mac] IE Favorites (bookmarks) are not imported properly

As a bug which possibly seems to be related, bug 236304 is newly open. Although this new bug is a bug of firefox, adjusting well by persons in charge may be able to receive a benefit also by mozilla.
*** Bug 255477 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
--> Invalid, since mac IE is dead and we also don't try to import its favorites anymore (bug 433117).
