    I've gone back to an older version of Firefox (because I don't like some of the new changes). I saved my bookmarks as an HTML file, then deleted FF. I downloaded the older version and installed it. I then went to bookmarks > Import to bring in my saved bookmarks. However, after doing so, there's nothing there. No new bookmarks. I tried it several times; even closed and reopened FF - to no effect.

    The image is *after* I supposedly imported my HTML bookmarks into the just-downloaded browser.

    Suggestions?

    P.S. - I just tried to bookmark this page, but after doing so nothing appeared at all under bookmarks? Nor can I apparently add a new folder. Very weird.

    Why does the title on the window say Library?

    Open Firefox to your home page then click on Bookmarks.
    The words should be: File, Edit, View, History, Tools and Help not what I see in your image.

    If you don't see those words, go here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-firefox-controls-buttons-and-toolbars
    and scroll down to turn on Menu bar or Bookmarks toolbar.

    Please state what version of Firefox you are running.
