How can I import/restore bookmarks to firefox from another computer/browser with bookmark icons included?
When you import bookmarks from Firefox or another browser into Firefox in a separate computer the bookmarks get imported fine, however their icons get disappeared. You have to click on every single bookmark in order to load its corresponding icon!
Note: The Google Chrome does not have this issue. The bookmark and their icons get imported to Chrome without further clicking on the imported bookmarks.

You would have to copy the places.sqlite file or possibly import an HTML backup (bookmarks.html) to get the favicons. A JSON backup doesn't include the favicons, so in that case you need to visit each bookmarked site.
