Exported bookmarks on old PC Imported on new PC with instructions found on forum. Nothing happens, no errors, nothing. Bookmarks dont show. Was exporting as an HTML a bad choice?

Which version of Firefox was that file exported from?

Export and Import using HTML format should work.

Try opening the HTML file which you exported and verify that the bookmarks are there. The formatting is very barren when viewed in a web browser, but the hyperlinks work and the folder structure will be there.

File > Open File ... and navigate to where you have that bookmarks.html file stored.
