Export & Import Bookmarks in FIrefox

I have a new laptop and want to import my bookmarks to the new box.  I googled it, followed the instructions with no luck.  The instructions say that it will create an html file but the extension on the file is ".json".  When I try the import it does not work.
Any one have an idea?

JSON is JavaScript Object Notation. You are probably following these instructions here under the "manual backup" section?

If you do, it will create a JSON file. There is another option on that same menu to "Export the bookmarks to HTML..."

Can you confirm which you are selecting?
