Cant import bookmarks into Firefox

I'm on Ubuntu 18.04, running Firefox 64.

I've tried importing directly through the wizard from chrome, and from chromium. I've tried importing through an html file (the html file itself is fine). Just literally nothing happens. I've tried running FF from console to see if there were any error messages, nope nothing.

Does this just not feature just not work at all?

These instructions are for Firefox.

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.
