How to import bookmarks from another firefox user browser?

Posted

Microsoft does not suggest using the admin profile/user as one`s main internet browsing venue, so I have made another account with limited access for security purposes. The problem is my admin account has all my Firefox bookmarks! So basically I am trying to import bookmarks from Mozilla Firefox to another? Mozilla Firefox browser on my computer! Most of your import help is form a DIFFERENT browser,Chrome, Explorer,ect ,but not from Firefox to Firefox, if you will. Does this make sense?

Thank you for a quick reply. Most computer problems I solve by research, but sometimes I panic when everything does not go right,which was this case. With input from you and Swarnava I was finally able to import the bookmarks! Yes, yes oh yes!...
