How do I save my "Bookmarks" to a floppy before I take my computer in to have it Re-formatted? Thanks- Larry

Assuming you are using Windows XP, the file you want to back up is bookmarks.html that can be found in C:\Documents and Settings\[YOUR WINDOWS LOGIN NAME]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[RANDOM STRING OF LETTERS].[YOUR PROFILE NAME]

The Application Data folder is hidden by default, so you'll need to go to Tools > Folder Options, click on the View tab and then click the button next to Show hidden files and folders to see it.

If you want to back up your entire profile, just save the entire weirdly named folder that bookmarks.html is in to your disk.
