Firefox: Import bookmarks with ease
Whether you're using your Firefox bookmarks on a new computer or want to transfer your bookmarks from another browser to Firefox, importing your favorites ensures that you won’t have to copy them over one at a time. Before importing your bookmarks, you have to export them to an HTML file. Once you've done that, simply follow the steps below.
- When you open Firefox, you’ll see the Bookmarks menu at the top of the screen. Open this menu and choose Show All Bookmarks. If you don’t see these options in your version of Firefox, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [B]. This will take you directly to the bookmarks library.
- You can now import the bookmarks into Firefox on the Import and Backup tab. To do this, click Import Bookmarks from HTML... in the dropdown menu.
- Your directory structure will pop up, and you can find your file. Select the previously exported HTML file containing the bookmarks. The bookmarks are now imported.
- If you want to import the bookmarks from another browser, navigate to Import and Backup, click “Import data from Another Browser” and select the browser you want to import them from.
To complete this step, choose “Finish” and the import will be done automatically. Now all your bookmarks and other imported data are available in your new Firefox browser.
