Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Heh yes this does seem weird at first because it is somewhat `hidden', but it's not that it is not there. Just go to Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks, and then under 'Import and Backup' you have both 'Import HTML' as well as 'Export HTML'. Enjoy!
I believe I know the issue... you are running Unity, and I have not tried this while running Unity, which is why I did not understand what had happened, but it occured to me after I looked at your picture... the menu items for the bookmark manager you have are not there as you see, but they are in the top Unity panel... this is an effort to make a global menu panel for all applications, and thereby ensure more screen space for window content. So next time you open firefox normally, just go to the top Unity panel, and you will see your menu items appear as you hover your mouse over it!
EDIT: P.S.: I would urge you to get rid of the older version and move to FF4 - now FF5 - since it is crisper and faster. Once you get used to handling things in the Unity panel, you will think - "Why the hell did they design anything otherwise before?"
