Since the release of Firefox, the export feature of the Bookmark organizer does not work.  When the export commands are entered, Firefox seems to ignore the command and no backup file is exported.  No windows pop up to choose locations at all.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the Bookmark Organizer through Bookmarks >> Organize Bookmarks
2.Attempt Export of Bookmarks through File >> Export...
3.When nothing at all happens, repeat until frustrated.
Actual Results:  
Nothing.  Using File >> Export... results in absolutely nothing happening at all.  No prompts to choose a location, no indication that a file is saving... nothing.

Expected Results:  
The execution of the Export command should have at least prompted for the user to choose a location to save the file.  Then it would have saved to that location, and perhaps indicated with a confirmation of some sort.

No errors pop up, and no crashes occur when attempting to export.

Do you run any extensions?  If so please try launching Firefox in Safe Mode, then try the bookmark export again.

I disabled the addons one at a time, and had success running the Export after disabling the Foxmarks extension.  They recently added a backup button to the window that pulls up with Organizing Bookmarks.

Updating to the latest version of the extension solved the issue and I can now export my bookmarks.

Bugs are not fixed unless there is actually a change made to fix them.  There likely was a change on foxmarks end but that would likely be their bug not ours.
