What's the reason you want to do this? The method you posted works. This is also an alternative. When Uninstalling Firefox it will ask you if you want to delete you files and setting. Click yes and it will finish. Then you can reinstall fresh.

If you save them they will reinstall you'd have to delete them. So you basically want as if you've installed for the 1st time ever?

You can simply go to bookmarks, organize bookmarks.
From there, go to import and backup, and choose export HTML. This will save all your bookmarks in an HTML file that you can then restore by using the same method, but choose Import HTML.

Did it perhaps already save your book marks?
