I already tried that and didn't do anything, Window$ bookmarks have a ."url" extension and a different format, and the import tool only works with html files. An example of an IE bookmark

cat java.url

In IE: File -> Import and Export -> Next -> Export Favorites. Generated file will have *.htm extension and will look like:
<!DOCTYPE NETSCAPE-Bookmark-file-1>
<!-- This is an automatically generated file.
It will be read and overwritten.
Do Not Edit! -->
    <DT><H3 FOLDED ADD_DATE="1061216292">CAD</H3>
        <DT><A HREF="" ADD_DATE="1061216271" LAST_VISIT="1061216292" LAST_MODIFIED="1014378812">Ask Inga</A>
        <DT><A HREF="" ADD_DATE="1061216271" LAST_VISIT="1061216292" LAST_MODIFIED="1014378558"></A>

Then simply import this file in Mozilla.
