just installed 7 pro, how can I import my bookmarks which I saved on a different drive?

Posted

just installed windows 7 pro. I saved my bookmarks on a second drive but can not find how to import into my new copy of firefox. Why is this not an option when I go to import? Only option is IE.

It depends on the format you saved the bookmarks in.

If it was an HTML file see Import Bookmarks from an HTML file

If you used the JSON format to backup the bookmarks see Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer. (Use the Restore - Choose file option)

If you saved the places.sqlite file, you can place that file in your new profile folder, replacing the file that is already there. This will replace the bookmarks and history with those from your previous version.
