Bookmarks in .json not html for backup and exporting

more options

Been using Firefox for decades, and there is a recent change which has me flummuxed. I've gone to a dual boot Windows system and want to export my bookmarks from one Firefox to the other. I go to All Bookmarks/Import and Backup/ and see a button that says "save in html", just as in former versions. I click on "Save to HTML" and tell it to go to my usual Firefox backup place in which I have backups going back to 2014 in html, the last dating to August or September 2018. Click "save".

I then click on "Import from HTML". My newest backup shows in .json but NOT in HTML.

What am I doing wrong?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

If you press the Export Bookmarks to HTML option, the output file will be an HTML file. If you press Backup, the output file will be a JSON file.

If you have an HTML file, the Import Bookmarks from HTML option will work. If you have a JSON file, you just need to press the Restore option and select Choose file...

Hope this helps.
