In Firefox the bookmarks are saved in a database file called places.sqlite in the profile folder. If you have got this file from the external hard drive you can restore the bookmarks by copying this file to your current profile folder. For details of the location of the profile folder see either https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Profiles or http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox

Thanks for the help. Apparently I didn't have the bookmarks backed up as I had thought.

Which folder or file did you save?

If you saved the IE Favorites folder and you can use IE to export at least the IE favorites that you previously had and import that file in Firefox.
