I'm having trouble with my computer and I would like to reinstall Windows 10. I'm currently using FF 76.0.1.

What do I need to do before I reinstall Windows so I can download Firefox and then "load" it with my current bookmark list and my extensions?

Windows 10 has a Refresh/Reset feature that will ask you whether you want to "Keep my files" (usually in a C:\Windows.old folder), or or "Remove Everything". I suggest "Keep my files" because even if you think you have a complete backup, better safe than sorry.
