To be safe, in FF, click Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks. In the window that opens, click on the "Import and Backup" drop down, then backup. You now have a backup file of your favorites.

It should have filled in the filename already. I think it places it on the desktop and is labeled with "bookmarks-< the date> as a JSON file. That is fine, as long as you remember where it is in case you need to restore it. Good luck!

Once you click "backup" in the dropdown, it should show "Desktop" in the location at top. In the file name box, enter Bookmarks-2010-4-29, in "Save as Type" box select JSON. Click the "Save" box.

Click Import and Backup dropdown, then "Export HTML...". In the location box towards teh top, see that "Desktop" is the location, In file name box enter: bookmarks, in "Save as type" box, choose "HTML files" Click the "Save" box at the bottom. Good luck!

They should be on your Desktop by default. Right-click your taskbar and select "Show the desktop". They should show up there. The nice thing about the JSON files is Firefox knows about them so when you go to restore, you just choose the date, because it already knows when it took the backups.
