BTW--one does not need to export books marks in Firefox if they are using the "sync" option. They need only to "sync" their computer so the latest bookmarks, passwords, and other settings have been updated. They can then "re-sync" after re-installation but need to change the sync option to add the saved data to the computer with the newly installed Firefox. Exporting bookmarks is probably a good idea as a back-up, but syncing allows one to keep a lot more of their Firefox customizations. For example, it one has a lot of saved passwords, those can be synced. So if you give out advice to re-install Firefox to anyone else, you might want to point out the syncing option to them:
I might add this option is primarily for people who want different computers to be the same, but since all the users data is stored online, it works with even one computer to save a lot more than just bookmarks.
