Importing Bookmarks Crashes the Browser

more options

Every time I try to import my bookmarks from either the .json or the .html file, the process ends up with Firefox not responding, and then I have to close the program. I do have a lot of bookmarks, but I've also given it up to ten minutes to import everything before I try clicking away, and no dice. Is there a fix to make sure it doesn't hang or crash? I really need my bookmarks back.

Chosen solution

Part of the file name for the JSON backup files show the number of bookmarks in that file. How many bookmarks do you have?

Example: bookmarks-2018-02-20_1744_wKIP-VA7OrAbVqyTCXr-gQ==.jsonlz

1744 bookmarks in that .jsonlz (compressed) backup file.
