Ways to Import Bookmarks Into Firefox

There are two methods to import bookmarks in Firefox.

If the browser you wish to import bookmarks from is already installed on your computer, Firefox has a direct import feature. This feature allows you to select the source browser, and then it helps you migrate bookmarks.

In case you have exported bookmarks from your other browser to an HTML file, use Firefox’s import HTML feature. This allows you to load your HTML file into Firefox, and Firefox will add all your bookmarks. The other browser doesn’t have to be installed.
