how do Sync my bookmarks from old computer to new computer - when the email address is different I have tried to change the new address in old computer as secondary email - it states there is already an account and i cannot enter that to be able to make my primary email address - I've also tried entering my old email address as the secondary email in my new computer - same story, won't accept it. Help -- certainly hope I can transfer my bookmarks somehow. Thanks in advance

These instructions are for Firefox. Other browsers should also be able to do this.

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.
