    I got the new Macbook and I am trying to figure out how to export the bookmarks from my old Macbook. I can't find an export anywhere. Thanks!

    In Firefox 3, you go to Bookmarks>Organize Bookmarks>then a window will pop up.

    From there, highlight the bookmarks and then click on the fifth button that looks like a star with a "syncing" type logo inside it and hit "Export HTML".

    what he said, but i found and prefer using the "backup..." feature, and then using restore to restore it. this only works in firefox3. in ff2 if i remember correctly your only option is "export" it will export all the bookmarks into a single html file that can then be opened by firefox2 and regenerate the bookmarks
