Simple: export them as an HTML file on the old machine, then open it by hand
on the new Firefox and bookmark the links you want.

Theoretically you could also manually, or automatically, prune the list by
hand before importing it on the new system.
Alternately, you could import everything, then hand-manage the list on the new
system, or even clean it on the old system and then migrate the settings.
