Any pointers as to what Mozilla guide and how it instructed you to
move the keyrings?  Maybe that'd make it easier for someone to spot
why your pubring didn't get imported properly.

Here's how I'd try this (not tested since I'm fortunate enough to not
have a windows box handy):

# export
gpg --export > public-keys.gpg
gpg --export-secret-keys > secret-keys.gpg
gpg --export-ownertrust > ownertrust.gpg

# import
gpg --import public-keys.gpg secret-keys.gpg
gpg --import-ownertrust ownertrust.gpg
