    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.
    in IE Import the resultant HTML file...

    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.
