How are the bookmarks stored? If they are in an HTML file you can go to Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks > Import and Backup >Import HTML select "From an HTML file" and go from there.

If you have no currently saved bookmarks, and the b/m's you want to import are already in a FF bookmark file you could just copy it over to your profile.

I just want to add something onto NyteOwl's answer:

"Organize Bookmarks" is now called 'Show All Bookmarks" in Firefox 4.
