Trying to get bookmarks from Windows only, but even though I created my own Sync acct, only the bookmarks from my husband's computer will import, please help?

All I could locate on your site is help getting bookmarks shared among multiple computers, this is the opposite of what I need. I have 2 comps and machine #2 keeps getting the bookmarks of machine #1. Please tell me how I can get the bookmarks from Windows on machine #2 imported into Firefox of machine #2? I made a different Sync account and uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox a number of times, checking that I wasn't synced each time, but my husband's bookmarks from machine #1 end up on machine #2 each time. Thank you.

To open the Bookmarks Manager, press the Alt or F10 key bring up the tool bar, and select Bookmarks. Hot key is <Control>(Mac=<Command>) <Shift> B.

Once the window is open, at the top of the page, press the button labeled Import and Backup. Select Export Bookmarks To HTML, and follow the prompts and save it to a HTML file. Copy the file to another computer. Repeat the instructions above, BUT select Import Bookmarks From HTML,
