losing all your bookmarks is a real pain..especially if you have hundreds like I do..to avoid this problem back them up periodically..
In firefox click Bookmarks ... Manage Bookmarks and then in the ...Bookmarks Manager( organize )... window click File ... Export... This creates a .html/.htm file with the bookmarks in the place of your choice....( I just send it to my desktop)
burn the file to cd and I just attach a copy of it to a email to myself to my web based email like yahoo or gmail...that way if ever something goes wrong you can just grab a copy and put them all back..
I learned this the hard way several years back after having to do a complete reinstall of XP...

I assume you know, but in case not; FF automatically makes backups of your bookmarks.
You can set the number by typing "about:config" in the address bar; then set the value in "browser.bookmarks.max_bookmarks."
You can find the saved, backup bookmarks in the Mozzilla, firefox, profile area of your system.
Such as this on my computer: C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\[user name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\0sjh33y9.default\bookmarkbackups
If you can't find them any other place, they may still be in their folder.
If so, you can copy the location of the one you want and paste it in the "import" section of the bookmark's manager.
