Using latest Windows 10 on a PC. Have used Firefox for years never had any problems before this. Firefox simply refuses to import my saved bookmarks.

Chosen solution

Do you have a lot of bookmarks? Sometimes Firefox takes a long time to import a large HTML bookmark file.

After some amount of time (30-60 seconds?), you may see a dialog indicating that a script is slowing Firefox giving you an option to stop or continue. Click Continue.
