Doesn't Mozilla share its bookmarks with Internet Explorer by default?

Here's my setup:

Admin logon (used to install Mozilla)
Power User logon (used to run Mozilla)

Internet Explorer 6 SP1
Mozilla 1.2b

Windows XP Pro SP1

Usually when you install mozilla it auto shares its bookmarks with your IE favourites folder, but when I run mozilla the 'Imported IE Favourites' folder is empty. Is that because I used one profile to install it and another to run it? Or is it a bug in this release, I know 1.2.1 is out now and I'll try that on Friday.

Suggestions plz?

Go to manage bookmarks, tools, import.
Yes the different install/accounts are probably screwing you up. It is not a bug, or, the version of Mozilla.

I found that problem when i installed Mozilla 1.2.1 plus previous version, found a program though which can import them over from IE to Mozilla:

also you can add this line to your pref.js or user.js to make mozilla import ur favorites automatically everytime you start it:

Code:
user_pref("browser.bookmarks.import_system_favorites", true);
