Steps to reproduce:

1) configure nightly to sync bookmarks with android.
2) make sure you have bookmarks on mobile section in nightly (synced from android)
3) on nightly export bookmarks



Actual results:

mobile section is not exported in bookmarks.html
Component: Untriaged → Bookmarks & History
I think we need to teach https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/797c93d81fe446f78babf20894f0729f15f71ee6/toolkit/components/places/BookmarkHTMLUtils.jsm#362,952 about the mobile root. JSON backups should already handle this correctly. ni? myself to look into this tomorrow, unless Mak or Standard8 get to it first.

I wonder if there's a specific use-case to export mobile bookmarks to html. I suppose it's ok to do so, since html is the interchange format with third parties, but surely not a priority.

Just to confirm, mobile bookmarks do already get exported for the json format. So making this clear it is specific to html.
