I've got all my old laptop's bookmarks stored in HTML format in an email I sent myself.  But I don't know how to get that whole list into my new laptop's Firefox bookmarks.

 

Thanx in advance for any support with this.

Open Firefox and press Ctrl+Shift+B.

Then click "Import and Backup" at the top and select "Import bookmarks from HTML" in the dropdown list.

I had already tried all that before I posted this question, but the problem is:  how do I access the actual HTML icon that's in my email?

Download the html file from your email to your computer then browse to that location to import it.

Yah, thank you, Agouti:  I bumble-stumbled into that as I kept fiddling with it. :blush:
