Just open "organize bookmarks" and theres an option to export/save there. Then an easy import when you're back up and running and they're all there,

I'm sure the FBI/Department of Homeland Security would have a copy of everyone's favorites. Give them a call.

xp 32
C:\\Documents and Settings\\[user name]\\Application Data\\Mozilla

vista 64
C:\\Users\\[user name]\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla

Back up the whole folder, then when you reinstall firefox, replace the new Mozilla folder with the backup one.

This will back up add-ons, favourites, passwords.Firefox will be just the same as you had it before.

edit: you will have to turn on show hidden files and folders, to see the Application Data folder
