Other Bookmarks did not show up when I imported into Linux Parrot from Windows 8.1

more options

I imported my bookmarks from a windows 8.1 computer to Parrot Linux Debian desktop (2 different computers). I am missing the everything from 'Other Bookmarks' after I imported it into the Linux computer, I can see all everything from 'Bookmarks Menu' though. The windows machine is not working anymore. But I have a saved copy of all the bookmarks from the windows 8.1 computer.

Is there a reason my import left out the Other Bookmarks but imported the Bookmarks Menu? How do get them into the linux firefox browser.

Firefox 78.15.0 oesr Linux Parrot home edition OS version 4.11

Thanks in advance

If you imported an HTML bookmarks backup then the bookmark in the Other Bookmarks folder might have ended up in a folder with this name the Bookmarks Menu folder, so you can check that and possibly do a search if you remember a specific bookmark in this folder. Firefox 95+ has "Show in Folder" in the right-click context menu of a search result.

Yes there were saved as HMTL. I 100% certain the 'Other Bookmarks' from the Windows computer did not get imported correctly into the new linux computers 'Bookmarks Menu', I noticed tags missing as well. I really need all those missing bookmarks and tags.

If you open the HTML file in a tab in Firefox (it's a web page) and use Find (Ctrl+F), are your "Other Bookmarks" items in the file/page?

If you look for the same title or URL using the Bookmarks sidebar search box (Ctrl+B), does it appear anywhere? If so, you can right-click > Show in Folder to expand the "tree" to that bookmark in case it got imported into a subfolder somewhere.

Which Html file are you referring to? The html file I have saved as a json file or the ones that I imported into firefox, minus the missing books marks in 'Other Bookmarks' which did not get imported over from windows to linux?

Where should I start to look for this title or url? Within forefox browser or within the saved copy json file?

I expanded the trees within firefox for each on the left hand side, tabs and Otherbooks did not get imported over. I have a saved copy in json from my previous windows defunct computer, I am now on linux.

An HTML backup doesn't include Tags and other meta data (annotations). To transfer all such data you need to use a JSON backup, either one you created yourself or an automatically created backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

Note that restoring a JSON backup replaces all current bookmarks with the bookmarks in the JSON backup, so you lose newer bookmark that aren't in this backup. You can create an HTML backup beforehand that you can restore afterward.

If you used the Backup feature to create a JSON file, instead of using the Export feature to create an HTML file, then it won't be that easy to read, even in Firefox's JSON viewer (which fires up automatically when you open a .json file in a tab).

You can try the Restore method for your JSON backup file (see cor-el's link), or you can convert your JSON file to an export-style HTML file using my page here if you want to see its contents in a more readable format:
