How did you save the original bookmarks? What format?

they are part of the older version of Firefox that is still installed and still perfectly useable.....I thought downloading and installing the update would overwrite the original version, replacing it but incorporating its bookmarks. but it crated a separate parallel installation with no connection.

These instructions will combine the new bookmarks with the old.

Open the Bookmarks Manager; Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the toolbar, and select Bookmarks. Hot key is <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> B. Firefox 84+ <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> O.

Once the window is open, at the top of the page, press the button labeled Import and Backup. Select Export Bookmarks To HTML, and follow the prompts and save it to a HTML file. Copy the file to another computer/profile. Repeat the instructions above, BUT select Import Bookmarks From HTML.
