Yes, apparently no one thought about synching IE's use of a folder/file based organizational model with Mozilla's single file bookmarking method.

As you saw, the bookmarks are imported on installation but relegated to a sub-directory rathe than the top-level, even if NO other bookmarks exist. Add to this that the import command doesn't even work properly on a single bookmark from IE and it makes for a HUGE headache.

I'm a designer developer, and while I would like to switch to Moz I simply refuse until this problem is fixed. Switching is a total nightmare with this, and I have no idea why they don't just make it a priority and get it DONE! I'm not being unappreciative here, but I am saying that this is a PRIORITY if you have any interest in getting non-technical users to switch. People want a SEAMLESS transition and an experience that MIRRORS their old one. Hiding the bookmarks one level down is like transition sepukku.
