If you use Firefox or another Mozilla browser you can save your bookmarks by searching your hard drive for a folder named 'mozilla'. Inside you'll find a directory named 'Default' and inside of that you see yet another folder with a name consisting of letters and numbers, like this "3qxitiq5.slt". This name is random. In that folder there is a file named 'bookmarks.html'. Copy it to a safe location! If you need to reinstall your OS (like that ever happens! ), just copy that file back to the new Mozilla-Default-3qxitiq5.slt folder to overwrite the existing bookmark file and everything will be back to normal. Be sure to backup this bookmark.html file at least twice a month and you won't have to go thru a lot of hassle when your system crashes and burns. Which it eventually will... sooner or later.
