This extension does NOT copy the "always open new tab for domain X in container Y" assignments for each container, and other detailed settings, and any cookies.  It copies only the container names and icons and colors.  So import should really only be used into a new profile with no containers set up yet.
Risk impact

Containers settings export import requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Containers settings export import has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Simple easy quick and worked perfectly. Can't vouch for security, but I added, exported, imported on a new computer and removed. Problem solved. Couldn't be happier. Thanks for solving this problem!
