backing up BOOKMARKS
How do you backup Bookmarks to a HTML file or whatever. The How-To instructions dont look like my Library menu. There is no "export to" function. I have an updated Firefox. Where is it?
P.S. It would be a good idea to add a link to Bookmarking Tools, too.Read this answer in context 👍 1

The first step is to get to the Library window, formerly known as the Bookmarks Organizer or Bookmarks Manager before it was unified with history and downloads. Either:
- "Show All Bookmarks" in various places
Then you have choices.
The native "backup" format is a hard-to-read JSON data file. More compact, and possibly slightly richer for restoring to Firefox. See: Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer.
The classic "export" format yields the standard-ish bookmarks.html format file. See: Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file to back up or transfer bookmarks.
P.S. It would be a good idea to add a link to Bookmarking Tools, too.
Thank you! Now, in case of a disaster I hope it will restore properly if I have to reinstall. BTW, how do you bookmark the Bookmark Tools?

Sorry, my comment wasn't clear. It would be good if Mozilla added a link to the Library window to the Bookmark Tools so it will be easier to find.
Oh I see. Your comment was directed at Mozilla. I have to write this down someplace because I know I will forget.. Ctrl + Shift + B
