I want to replace my bookmark list with an import html file - how do I do this?

Posted

I have a bookmark file in Firefox. I want to replace the file - delete the current along with all bookmarks - and import a new HTML bokmark file to act as my primary bookmark list.

How do I do this?

Many thanks

John
