My English is not very good, so sorry for mistakes. I try it. I have to delete my drive, but do not want to lose my bookmarks. Microsoft Internet Explorer saves them as the file "favorites" in the folder "documents & settings". But where does Firefox save them? I didn't find anything. Can you help me?

Try this
Bookmarks - organize bookmarks - file - export to a file cd thumb drive floppy
Bookmarks - organize bookmarks - file - import
Note: These instructions are for Firefox 2, the only difference from previous versions is that the wording for 1.5 branch is
Bookmarks - Manage Bookmarks

Thanks! That works. It is not like Internet Explorer, which saves the Favorites as 1 file from which IE can read each favorite. As I see, I have to open the Bookmarks file, which is a site with links, and save each link new as my bookmark. So it's not that good as Internet Explorer, but if there's no other possibility, then that's great.

Thank you very much!

You don't have to do that, just use the import feature as malliz described. When you get to the import wizard, choose 'from file' and point it to the bookmarks.html file which it will import.
