There is an FAQ entry about this here:
http://www.palemoon.org/faq.shtml#How_d ... ng_Firefox

It says:
You can, however, import your bookmarks by first exporting them from Firefox (Bookmarks -> Show all Bookmarks -> Import and backup -> Export bookmarks to HTML), then importing them in Pale Moon (in the same location, but then choose "Import bookmarks from HTML").


If you need more information than this, please don't hesitate to ask.

I just had my desktop computer repaired, after paying also for a data download. Most of the data was reinstalled OK, including the bookmarks -- but not the bookmarks toolbar, on which I rely heavily. I solved this in Firefox by syncing with a laptop that had all the bookmarks. Then I tried to export/import to Pale Moon, which has been my preferred browser. I thought I followed the instructions: first trying to export bookmarks toolbar from Firefox to HTML and saving the resulting file to desktop, as suggested. Then I tried to import from HTML to Pale Moon, without success. When this didn't work, I did the same with all bookmarks (except Pale Moon doesn't show "all bookmarks" but just organize bookmarks). This didn't work either. In fact, the HTML documents didn't even show up in desktop file folder, though they showed in the actual desktop. I tried opening the detailed file from the desktop and copying the bookmarks toolbar items and pasting them to the Pale Moon bookmarks toolbar, but this didn't work. What am I doing wrong; how do I make this work?

Assumed you did select "import bookmarks from html" and had not seen "bookmark.html" file, there o you done something wrong at export operation. Do it again by "export bookmarks to html"
