Its always good to have a backup of all the things on your computer as you never know when it might crash.

Backing up bookmarks is an easy process to do. Just follow what is written below and you will be able to backup your bookmarks in no time.
By default Firefox backups bookmarks automatically when it is closed to C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profile name]\bookmarks.bak. To restore, just rename to bookmarks.html.
Firefox will also archive, by default, the last five saves to the bookmarkbackups folder at the same location. The number of times it archives, can be modified by typing in the address field: about:config and changing the value for browser.bookmarks.max_backups.

You can also export your bookmarks with Bookmarks Manager.
To access Bookmark Manager in Firefox, click Bookmarks from the menu, then Organize Bookmarks. Once Bookmark Manager opens, select File/Export from the menu and select a destination to save the bookmarks.htm file. To restore, just select File/Import and browse to the location of the bookmarks.htm.
