How to import old Bookmarks toolbar into new Bookmarks toolbbar

New Lenovo T520 laptop, Win7 Pro -- I exported via HTML all Bookmarks from old computer's Firefox 5 then imported that HTML file into new machine's Firefox 5.

Toolbar links did not go into the toolbar, but a Bookmarks Toolbar "folder" is at the bottom of the list of all Bookmarks. Tried to delete other Bookmark Toolbar folders, then drag my Bookmarks Toolbar into the Bookmarks Toolbar folder showing the 3 default links with no success -- my Toolbar Benchmarks folder dropped to the bottom of the All Bookmarks list.

I would prefer not to have to open each link to drag it to the Toolbar.

Thanks for any guidance.

This is how you do ti: do not export it as an HTML file but instead do a "Backup" in the Bookmarks of what you want to transfer. Then, on the other computer do an Import (not HTML--it has a file extension of "json"). That will replace ALL of your bookmarks but will also replace the Bookmarks Toolbar with the one you exported.
