How import saved bookmarks in a "Favorites" folder?


After a computer crash I was able to recover my data files and put them on my new computer. I found all the Firefox bookmarks in a folder called "Favorites" How do I bring this into my new Firefox bookmarks, which is just about empty now. There are lots of bookmarks that I'd hate to recreate anew. Any and all help greatly appreciated. Eric

Files in the "Favorites" folder are IE favorites and you need to export them in IE to an HTML file and import that file in Firefox.
