How do I import a .json file of bookmarks?

Posted

I saved a .json file of my bookmarks from my PC in order to transfer them in my laptop (on the laptop I have Firefox 23.0, I don't know yet what version is the one on the PC). But it doesn't work, I just keep clicking Import bookmarks from a HTML file and it does nothing.

You don't.

bookmarks.html format is imported, where the JSON format has to be restored.

Oh, right, now I see this other option too, which worked, finally. Thank you very much. :)
