    Your Firefox bookmarks are contained in a file called bookmarks.html. It is not located under the Mozilla Firefox program folder. If you have Windows XP, look under Document and Settings > [your account name] > Application Data > Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles.

    There should also be a backup file called bookmarks.bak in the same folder. If the .html file is missing, rename the .bak file to bookmarks.html and you should have access to your bookmarks, that is if the file is still there.
