Upon the requirement to restore my hard drive, I backed up all files/folders to reinstall upon completion of the restoration. I have a folder for my "favorites" or "bookmarks" for web browsing and want to import them to Firefox. The import option imports them from another browser but I cannot find a bookmark folder in Firefox or find a method to easily move them from my folder. Can anyone provide assistance with moving them to Firefox?

Thank you

Firefox does not use a folder for bookmarks, it uses a SQLite database file places.sqlite.
You should backup/restore from Firefox menu : Bookmarks -> Organize Boormarks ->Import/Export bookmarks.
You can also use Mozilla Backup tool for creating backup of all Firefox settings.

I decided to put the favorites into IE then import to Firefox. I don't know why I didn't think of that earlier.

Thanks
