How to import bookmarks into Firefox from another web browser

If you have bookmarks in Internet Explorer, Chrome, or any other web browser and you want to import them into Firefox, you can do it easily by following the steps below.

- In Firefox, click on Bookmarks on the menu bar
- Select either Show All Bookmarks or Unsorted Bookmarks
- Click on Import and Backup at the top of the screen
- Select Import Data from Another Browser
- Select the browser you want to import the bookmarks from
- Click Next
- Uncheck anything that you don't want to import (ie. Cookies, Browsing History, etc.)
- Click Next
- When the bookmarks have been loaded, click Finish

If your web browser does not appear on the list of possible web browsers to import bookmarks from, Firefox may not support importing bookmarks from that browser.  In that case, you would have to export the bookmarks from that browser into an HTML file, and then use Firefox's Import Bookmarks from HTML option instead.

These instructions were tested with Firefox versions 13.0.1 and 37.0.1.  The exact steps or wording may vary for other versions.
