I have tons of bookmarks and toolbars links on two computers. I want to start using just one of them and would like to combine all the bookmarks, etc. Is there a way to do this?

Chosen solution

PC 1: Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks -> Import & Backup - Export HTML... - to a USB stick
then
PC: 2 Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks -> Import & Backup - Import HTML... - from file on that USB stick

That will add all the bookmarks from PC 1 to PC 2. You will end up with duplicates when the same bookmark is on both PC's.
Try the Sort Places extension to locate and get rid of the duplicates: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9275
