Import and export Firefox bookmarks

Import bookmarks into Firefox:
(Restore backed-up or migrated bookmarks)
  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Select Library (stacked books icon) > Bookmarks > Show all Bookmarks.
  3. In the Library window, click Import and Backup >Import Data from Another Browser…..
    The Import Wizard will open.
  4. Select the browser that contains the bookmarks or other data that you want to use in Firefox and then continue to the next screens to make your selections and complete the import.
  5. If the Import Wizard does not list your other browser, you can still import bookmarks from another browser but you will need to first export and save those bookmarks as an HTML file. Visit the support site for your other browser if you need help with that.
