In your profile folder.
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bookmarks

You must see the hidden files & folders to find it.
For Windows 2000 and XP users

If you cannot find your profile folder: In Windows 2000 and XP, the default profile locations listed below are inside the "Application Data" folder, which is hidden; in order to see it, you will need to enable viewing of hidden files and folders:

* In Windows Explorer (or My Computer), click: "Tools → Folder Options → View (tab) → Show Hidden files and folders".

If you are having trouble finding your "Application Data" folder, you may wish to make use of the %APPDATA% environment variable, which points to the location of the folder for the logged-in user. For example:

* "Start → Run → %APPDATA% will open the "Application Data" folder.

The easiest way to back up your bookmarks (which are stored as a single file by Firefox) is to go to Bookmarks -> Organize Bookmarks --> File -> Export. Put 'bookmarks.html' wherever you want to back it up.

When I try to follow this procedure I get an error message that I'm not allowed to open this file, that I have to get permission from the administrator.

I'm using Win 98 and Firefox 2.0.0.7

The source or the destination file?

Source, I believe, I can't get very far. I'm trying to save them to a cd, so I can load them onto my new pc. I have quite a few bookmarks.

Ensure you are logged in as root when performing this action!
