How do I import my favorites from AOL to Firefox?

Hello! Could you describe what format your AOL Favorites are currently in?
Thank you for the reply but since I am old and not very good with computers I need to know what do you mean when you ask what format?
I tried doing a little web search and I'm not sure what the answer is. I don't have an AOL account.
A number of articles mentioned going to http://favorites.aol.com/ and looking for an “Export Bookmarks” button, either on the lower part of the screen or in a Bookmarks menu. Hopefully that exists.
However, I also saw an article describing using a script to extract data from the page, implying that the export button might have been removed. ??
If you do find an export, it should save in the standard "bookmarks.html" format, and then you can import that into Firefox using the steps in this article: Import Bookmarks from an HTML file.
