    Click the Import & Backup button at the top of the page, and choose Import Bookmarks From HTML. A new window pops up. Navigate to the folder that contains the HTML file. Click the file, and click the Open button. Firefox then imports the bookmarks and lets you view them using the Bookmark button in the browser. Alternatively, view your bookmarks with the hotkeys "Ctrl+Shift+B", or check the option to view your bookmarks on a bar.
