You can copy the file places.sqlite from one computer to the other.

Also, in SeaMonkey you can use menu path Bookmarks->Manage Bookmarks->Tools->Export HTML. The file produced can then be loaded into the SeaMonkey profile on the second computer using menu path Bookmarks->Manage Bookmarks->Tools->Import HTML.

The only problem about copying the places.sqlite file and pasting it in the other computer which I did, it replaced all the bookmarks I had it there. Is there a way to add rather than replace the bookmarks? Thanks.

You can set browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML to true and import the resulting html file. But this adds everything and not just any nonexiting items. There should also be a json backup in your profile which you can import.

Bookmarks saved as .json will replace bookmarks. If they are saved as .html, they will append.
