    Documents and settings, user name, application data, Mozilla, Firefox, profiles. Whew!

    Actually it's in Documents and settings, <user name>, application data, Mozilla, Firefox, profiles, <profile name>, bookmarks.html, where bookmarks.html contains all the bookmarks. Unlike those for IE where each bookmark is stored as a separate file in a Favourites directory.

    I guess Ronjor's shovel went blunt as he reached the profiles directory, whereas mine stayed sharp and I was able to carry on digging... ;)

    You can change the location using this on the 'user.js', that is on your profile folder:

    // Specify which bookmarks file to use:
    user_pref("browser.bookmarks.file", "D:\\Browser Favorites\\bookmarks_firefox.html");

    There is a neat FF Extension "Bookmark Backup 0.3.3" that saves your bookmarks as Sunday thru Saturday to a location you can specify (or Default). http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/
