It can't be done, that's the whole point the two don't talk to each other thank goodness. The only thing you can share are the Bookmarks/Favorites and that has to be done manually.

Being as Firefox is open source, in other words you can see the code that makes it tick, not so with Internet Explorer, so therefore you can't even write a script for it to be done.

You can, of course, import IE settings into Firefox via FF's File>Import.

So if you have any in IE you want to swap over...:-)
