    How Do I Import Bookmarks and Saved Logons Into Firefox on Win 10


    I exported the Firefox bookmarks and Saved Logons/passwords from my Win 7 computer. But I can't find a way to import them into Firefox 113.0.2 on Win 10 computer. I don't see manage bookmarks and Import Bookmarks has choices only for edge and chrome. I don't see anything in tools about importing saved logons.

    Can someone please help with this? I need to get the bookmarks and logons transferred to the Win 10 computer I'm trying out.

    If your signed in to Firefox on both PCs and you set it to sync they appear on their own as if by magic along with any add-on settings etc

    Go to: Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > Import and Backup, and the "Import" from HTML file or from another browser...

    I did a search and found the command shift-ctrl-o to get the bookmarks library open and to do an import. And also to see the bookmark list. "Manage Bookmarks" is all the way at the bottom so I didn't notice it.

    Thank you Samuria and Ghot.

    I did another search and found that there's a bug in FF and what to change in About: Config to import the saved logons.
    So now I have both the bookmarks and logons.

    I did a search and found the hidden command shift-ctrl-o to get the bookmarks library open and to do an import. And also to see the bookmark list. Really dumb to have that hidden and nothing explaining that it exists there and to use it.

    But I still can't find a way to import the saved logons. I would greatly appreciate assistance with this.



    I don't think you can import the logons. You have to do those for each browser.
