How can I import (or manually transfer) my bookmarks from one Firefox account to another Firefox account?

I have one firefox email account, call it account A, that I mainly use at work. I have another firefox account, account B, that I mainly use at home. I would like to import all the bookmarks from account A to account B and ideally edit the bookmarks from account B in the process. I tried making account A a secondary account to B and I just get told "that account already exists". The same thing happens when I try making account B a secondary account to A. Ultimately I want to get all my bookmarks to account B as I don't use the email for account A much at all anymore and just sign in to get my extensive collection of bookmarks.

Does each have its own sync? Each e-mail is only allowed to have only one sync account.

These instructions will combine the new bookmarks with the old.

Open the Bookmarks Manager; Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the toolbar, 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/profile. Repeat the instructions above, BUT select Import Bookmarks From HTML.
