Hey, thank you so much for sending me to that page....however, the situation is a bit more complicated. I should have mentioned that I'm working off a new computer onto which I just downloaded Google Chrome without the old bookmarks that I'm looking to import to Firefox. The old bookmarks have been recently stored in a folder on the desktop of this new computer--a folder that I can't figure out what to do with: its files will open with a lot of gibberish in Mozilla FF, but I don't know how to save its contents as html or any other format. Do you know how to export the contents of this folder?
Sorry to complicate the issue!

Sorry. i cant understand what you are trying to say.

I hope you want to export chrome bookmarks to an html file. Doing that is already explained in that link.

what folder ? what format are you talking about?

I think my problem was obfuscated by the fact that the person who did the data transfer from one computer to the next placed a misleading (non-useful) folder on my desktop that purported to contain the necessary backup of my Chrome bookmarks--it did not. As you surmised, it was a simple solution in the link you sent me to, and it worked just as simply. I didn't have to mess around with a "bookmarks bak" file or any of that. Thanks for your help
