I installed Firefox Quantum 57.0(64bit) and the “Export Bookmarks to HTML” procedure no longer works.
(Show All Bookmarks -->Import and Backup-->Export Bookmarks to HTML)
Clicking on “Export Bookmarks to HTML” opens the Desktop but clicking on “Save” does not save the HTML file. :?:

That's odd. It works fine here.
Firefox 57.0 (64-bit)
Windows 7 Home 64-bit.

It works for me.

Firefox 57.0
Windows 7 SP1 32-bit

Is there an error in the console?

* Tools > Web Developer > Browser Console > Clear the Web Console output
* Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Export Bookmarks to HTML

Thanks for the responses. I have found that forums, usually manned* by unpaid volunteers, are the best place to find help, rather than the vendors.

I just happen to think and wonder whether the Xmarks add-on that I have installed prevents the export of bookmarks (even after I unchecked the synchronization). I tried exporting Bookmarks on my tablet ( no Xmarks add-on, Windows 10, Firefox Quantum 57) and that worked just fine.

Any comments would be much appreciated.

* “manned” is probably not politically correct these days, but “peopled” just didn’t sound right.
