How to transfer Firefox bookmarks (hundreds!) from a Windows XP PC to a new Windows 7 PC

Firefox has been the default browser on the existing XP system, and we intend to use it as the default on a new Windows 7 system.

I expect that the Windows Easy Transfer system would do OK with Internet Explorer bookmarks, but may have some traps and pitfalls for Firefox users.

Is there a transfer procedure that is known to work for Firefox bookmarks?

Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup - Export HTML... - to a USB stick
then
Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup - Import HTML... - from file on that USB stick

Thanks so much -- it worked perfectly. Am in throes of transferring to new laptop, recovering from surgery and on an exceptionally short leash on my temper. Didn't need another problem.

Thanks again.
