Restore is the json and Import html is the HTML restore

Yeah, the others explained where to navigate to import your saved html bookmarks back into your new FF install. Did you follow the steps?

Right click on the top bar on a blank space until you see where it says menu bar, like in the picture. Check it so you have the menu bar there, then go to bookmarks.

Still don't understand what you mean by "old settings"? Are you trying to get just your old bookmarks back into Firefox, or all your old settings that you had in your old Firefox install?

If you want the old settings and everything, you would have to use your old Firefox profile, if you still have it, and make the new firefox install use that instead of the new profile it's using.
