When you install Internet Explorer over a browser program other than Netscape Navigator or an earlier version of Internet Explorer, your favorites may not be imported into Internet Explorer's Favorites folder.

This behavior occurs because Internet Explorer only imports favorites (or Navigator bookmarks) from Netscape Navigator or earlier versions of Internet Explorer.

To resolve this issue, you must manually re-create your favorites list. To do so, start Internet Explorer, navigate to a Web site you want to add to your favorites list, and then click Add To Favorites on the Favorites menu.

This behavior is by design.
