Copy Firefox Bookmarks to new computer via flashdrive
I used Firefox on an older laptop running Windows 7. I FINALLY purchased a new desktop - HP with Windows 10. I have all my pictures, etc. on an external hard drive (Seagate). I also copied all my Firefox Bookmarks to a FlashDrive. I have tried copying from both external doing Import and everything offered to copy. I have alot of bookmarks and it would take me forever to open each page and create a new bookmark. I can only get it to copy and it says it's from my D Drive (Flashdrive and External) and opens a list but will not create bookmark in my FF "Star" Bookmarks at the top right of the screen. I need these bookmarks desperately as that is how I pay bills on line, acccess my health info., etc. Can someone please help me? I have tried everything and nothing works!!
Hi LindaLC, what method did you use to put your Firefox bookmarks on the Flash drive? For example:
- "Export" command - created an HTML-format file (Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file to back up or transfer bookmarks)
- "Backup" command - created a JSON-format file (Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer)
To import an HTML-format export file, or restore a JSON-format backup file, try the steps in the relevant article:
- "Import" feature - Import Bookmarks from an HTML file
- "Restore" feature - Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer (you'll need to click "Choose file" on the Restore menu)
