    Go to bookmarks-Oraganize bookmarks-file-export and save it too your desktop/My Documents


    The Bookmarks file is also in your profile folder(its called Bookmarks.BAK/Bookmarks.html).

    See how to get to your profile folder here:

    I also recommend that you back up your profile folder aswell since it contains your passwords, extensions, preferences as well as your bookmarks.

    There's an addon for Firefox called Foxmarks which saves your bookmarks to your account on their site.

    http://www.foxmarks.com/

    The addon automatically syncs so there is no worry for doing it manually. Personally I found this add on quite useful as it enabled me to access all my bookmarks from any computer with access to the internet.
