~/.mozilla/your_login_name/

There you will find a folder with a (I believe) random name. In that folder you have a file named bookmarks.html

On my machine it's: /home/martin/.mozilla/martin/z1lzcyfc.slt/bookmarks.html

Regards
Martin

Interesting, since our replies were pretty different. Try this instead (in Mozilla)

Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks...

The Bookmark editor is opened. From there, you can export the bookmark file by

Tools > Export...

If you do a
ls ~/.mozilla/default
you will see only one dynamically created folder in which on of the files is bookmarks.html

Editing this file would be a nightmare. The way to edit them is as MartinN has posted.

ls -a

or if your looking for just one (example .mozilla)

ls .mo
and hit the TAB key
this will complete the filename.
