Have always backed up Bookmarks from Firefox  from main PC (Win 10) as both .json & HTML files. I then restored them to my laptop with no issues.

 

.Json file is 6,345 kb.

 

Have new Win 10 laptop. Today's bookmarks restored to old laptop with no issues. But it only partially restores the .json file on new laptop. It is the Toolbar that doesn't restore. It just hangs/freezes at that point. Tried to import the HTML with same results.

 

Toolbar actually has my most important folders/links. Any suggestions on how to fix?

 

Can I rename the places.sqlite file from new laptop and replace it with the one from my PC?

 

Thanks
