Well, first you check the date of the previous posts in the thread so you don't reply to a topic that died 15 years ago.

Next you use menu path Bookmarks->Show all bookmarks->Import and Backup->Export. Or Bookmarks->Show all bookmarks->Import and Backup->Export to HTML.

When Firefox imports an HTML-format bookmark export file, it may or may not slot the bookmarks back to their original location. You may find a new folder called Imported Bookmarks at the bottom of the Bookmarks Menu with a toolbar subfolder, and need to drag/drop or cut/paste the ones that belong on the toolbar to the Bookmarks Toolbar. The best place to do bulk moves is the Library window opened by "Show All Bookmarks".

What about using Firefox sync with both computers, perhaps on a one-time basis if not desired permanently?
