does support.mozilla.org store bookmarks
my computer crashed recently. I am an avid fan of firefox browser. I had many bookmarks bookmarked before the crash. is there anyway to get them back from some sort of storage mozilla.org has. or has stored somewhere based on the bookmarking practices I have entered and was recorded somewhere??? if nothing can be done than so be it, I will just start over but it is worth a shot. firefox is second to none when it comes to browsers, just an FYI. many thanks in advance.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.
Firefox get ten JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder in the Firefox profile folder.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
- Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder (Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder)
What and how did your computer crashed? Did you ever use the sync service, Sync is the only way you can store data on Mozilla's servers.
If your hard drive messed up, you will likely not be able to recover your bookmarks.
You could try methods to reverse this if you really want bookmarks back.
