I've got IE9 installed on a Windows 7 (x86) system and on a Windows Vista (x86) laptop. On both machines the same problem:

I export favorites to a bookmark.htm file, then delete all favorites in IE9.

I then try to import bookmarks from that same file into IE9.

It fails, I get a red cross and message "There was aproblem importing some of your settings".

Tried exporting/importing new bookmark file several times on both machines.
Same error every time. Luckily I was able to import them into FF3 and from there into IE9 via "Import from another browser".

Has anyone experienced this error in IE9? Thanks in advance.

No, that link in no way describes how I'm doing it.

As I said, I'm exporting from IE9 to an html file same as I've always done with all earlier versions of IE.

I am then importing that same file, again same as I've always done with all earlier versions of IE.

It doesn't work, IE just says "There was a problem, some of your settings could not be imported".

That's the first time I've tried importing favorites into IE9, I only did it to test that it works, and it doesn't.
