When I try to backup my bookmarks per the instructions, it saves in Internet Explorer and the file does not open

I save my bookmarks to my desk top and the Internet Explorer Icon displays next to the file. When I try to open it, it goes to IE and then a blank webpage appears and then disappears.

It worked, thank you, but I am buying a new computer next week and I wanted it as simple as backing up to my USB and transferring like you can on IE. How can I do this?

I exported the Bookmark to html. file. When I open with Firefox, it gives me the same html file.
