You can also export them.

Click Bookmarks, Manage Bookmarks, File, Export, then give the file a name and Save.

The bookmarks in FX do sometimes get lost, they are working on a fix for it. Why? I'm not positive, it just get deleted every now and then. Anyhow, to fix this, i suggest running a search on it. If not, use a freeware tool that recovers deleted files. No file is gone forever.

i've heard of this bug in firefox but have never had the problem myself.

if you even lose your settings or bookmarks you can always run

Firefox.exe -profilemanager

in the windows run command.

most of the time it just forgets what profile your using.

Bookmarks are sorted in:

c:\documents and settings\[your windows logon]\application data\mozilla\firefox\profiles\[random salting].[your profile name]\bookmarks.html

Most of the time people "lose" their bookmarks they are not gone, just the link between fx and your profile has been lost.
