I use 4 different browsers ( Pale Moon, Firefox Quantum, SlimJet, & Chrome )all of which can both import and export bookmarks via HTML.
How can I export and then import into another browser just one folder of my many folders and individual bookmarks?
Thanks

I export and import between Palemoon, FF ESR and FF Quantum. I don't use the other two browsers so I can't tell you what to do for those.

In FF or Palemoon, export to HTML. I put the HTML file on my desktop then copy to a USB stick to use on a different computer.
Open FF or Palemoon, the one you did not use above. Make sure there are no bookmarks or you will have duplicates and it will be a pain to cleanup.
In this second browser select Import from HTML and point it to the file on your desktop or a USB stick.

Some people sync bookmarks. I choose not to do that because a) my two computers have different bookmarks than my husband's two computers and I don't want them mixed and b) I prefer to keep bookmarks private and not sitting in some cloud server storage.
