Default FireFox Favorites

Hi Everybody,
Recently my main computer's graphics card is fried and i'm sortof in a pinch here but what i'm asking is where and how firefox stores your favorites. I Cannot see my screen but i have an FTP server running so I have acess to all of the files on the system. I really would like to get those favorites so does anyone know where or how they are stored?
Thanks

I need to get the favorites from firefox on one computer on to another. I am basicly needing the file that the favs are stored in.

They are located in your Application Data Folder under docuements and settings under the user. follow this:

Documents and settings > User > Application Data > Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles > y62fdl1s.default > bookmarks.html

The bookmarks file contains any bookmarks that you have saved in Firefox. Hope this helps

I almost hate to ask but why can't you just plug in a new vid card?

click bookmarks. hit manage bookmarks. export the file to a spot on the hard drive and burn it to disc or upload it to yahoo my web pages, so it can always be around.
