backing up Moz bookmarks is easy

from the bar up top go.... Bookmarks> Manage Bookmarks

once there: Tools> Export

you can pick where it saves to and you can even view it as a webpage, if you want to restore your bookmarks at a later date it is the same process, just replace Export with Import.

They are stored in

qw3obgr4.slt is dynamically created the first time mozilla is opened. So that directory on your system will have a different name.
