No, it is not possible.
You can use e.g. "export bookmarks to html" to get some parts of it, but you can't port the whole thing.

Yes You Can! It's pretty simple.
First you download the following add-on: "Password Backup Tool 1.4.1" from https://github.com/JustOff/password-backup-tool/releases/tag/1.4.1/ (you cannot open this page (will not see the download-link) in Pale Moon or Basilisk because github.com is now addicted to Chrome. Simply open the page in Firefox or Edge or tralala...). Install this add-on password-backup-tool-1.4.1.xpi in Pale Moon then.
Then open in Firefox about:logins. Click the 3 points at the top right and export the access-data to a csv-file to a place of your choice.
Then click in Pale Moon in the installed "Password Backup Tool" on "Options" and "Import Passwords". Select the previously stored csv-file.
Now you could! 8-)

For security reasons, delete the csv-file safely when you're done :!:

Just substitute "tag" part with "expanded_assets" and you get a clickable list of files to download.
Like this: https://github.com/JustOff/password-bac ... sets/1.4.1
