Saving/restoring Firefox Bookmarks For A R.

Saving/restoring Firefox bookmarks for a reinstall
The purpose of this guide, is to teach you how to save the bookmarks you have accumulated, so you can replace them if you ever have to do a reinstall of Firefox.
If you don't save them prior to a reinstall, you will lose all of them.
It's also a good idea to save a copy everytime you backup your personal files, in case your computer ever crashes.Instructions
- First, set windows to show hidden files,
C:\ Documents and Settings \ "your user name" \ Application Data \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles \ default.random characters \ Bookmark.html
Windows Vista, 7, or 8:
C:\ Users \ "your user name" \ AppData \ Roaming \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles \ default.random characters \ Bookmark.html
That will put a copy of the file on your Desktop.
Also, since this is an .html file, you can open it in Internet Explorer, by double clicking it, and using the links that way.
Just click a link, and it will open in Internet Explorer.
