FireFox can export them to a single html file which can then be imported on the new system.

1. Click bookmarks then organise bookmarks
2. A new window will appear called Library. Click the import and backup button then click export html
3. Choose a location you want to save the file.

The bookmarks will be saved, to put them into the new firefox.

1. Click bookmarks then organise bookmarks
2. A new window will appear called Library. Click the import and backup
3. Click Import html
4. Choose from an html file and specify where the file is.
Regards,

Alan.

Open Firefox
Go to Bookmarks...Organize Bookmarks (this'll open another window)
Click on the File menu, then on Export.
Select a storage location on a removable device (such as a USB flash drive) and save them there.

Alternatively, I use the Foxmarks extension on Firefox. It keeps my bookmarks synchronized with their server so I don't have to worry about them any more. It's free here: http://www.foxmarks.com/
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
