    Wouldn't it be easier to use the sync option in firefox ? The added/Deleted bookmark(s) will be updated across all platforms/PC's where ever you have firefox installed.
    1. Right click on the title to show the Menu
    2. Tools->Setup Sync
    3. Sign up with an email or even a fake email
    4. Your bookmarks will be saved and anything you add/delete will be updated in real time.

    I'll do a separate tut for that as this one covers moving bookmarks between browsers.

    I use Hackensoft to Backup both Cyberfox and Firefox. It works great

    Firefox has an extension called FEBE where you can backup just your bookmarks.

    Every browser has an option to import Bookmarks from another browser.

    FEBE will backup your bookmarks, extensions Themes & more. The author has more extensions with different backup functions.

    The snips below show what I have backed up with FEBE with my preferred options and some 3rd party extensions cannot be backed up.

    I understand that mate, the sole intention of the tut was for creating a backup HTML file that can be restored to an clean install in the case of an OS reinstall. I thought it would be useful as it's something I never used to do until the last couple of years so had to manually re-add all of my bookmarks following a clean install. In that case there would be nothing to import from any other browser so didn't include it.

    I used FEBE allot when I was into Linux. It is a very good tool. Hackensoft can backup virtually any Browser.

    That's what sync is there for. On a brand new OS install, the minute you have firefox installed and sign in to sync, you'll get everything back. You need not to export/import to and from HTML bookmarks.

    P.S I am not trying to be wise or anything like that. It is just an option that many people don't know about and I am just putting my 2 cents.
