One method is to select "Bookmarks > manage Bookmarks..." to open the bookmarks manager. In the manager select "File > Export..." to save the bookmarks to a file.

Export: Bookmarks>Manage Bookmarks>File>Export and export them as an .html file.

Import: Bookmarks>Manage Bookmarks>File>Import>From File and point it to the .html file you saved.

Use "Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > File > Export" to export your bookmarks to disk.

If you want to save space then you can use a bookmarklet to remove the favicons:
Code: Select all
javascript:(function(){ var ls=document.getElementsByTagName('*'),lsL=ls.length; for (var i=0; i<lsL; i++) {l=ls[i]; l.removeAttribute('icon'); } alert('Cleanup Complete - Save as Web Page, Complete')})();

See: ... 11#2090111
This version only removes the favicons.

Load the bookmarks.html file in a Firefox tab:
File > Open File.
Use: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ in the File name field and go to the xxxxxxxx.default folder.
Copy and paste the bookmarklet in the url bar and press enter.
After it finishes you can save the file as "Web Page, complete".
