How save bookmarks so that I can correct system faults by re-installing windows 10 os ?

Last time I did a clean wipe, and followed all the export/import stuff and the ensuing json/html file debacle, I lost hundreds of my firefox bookmarks. I do not want any history, passwords, or anything else, just the bookmarks. How can I save them and have them ready for when I re-install Windows 10. Naturally Windows forces the user to go through their setup crap and it may be awhile before I've dumped most of their programs and re-establish firefox as my default browser. Thank You for any help.

I have lost the Firefox bar at the top of my email screen underneath the Yahoo bar, so it looks like an ad should be there but isn't (thank goodness).

I have this big space between my Yahoo search bar and my email list. It looks like an ad should be there. I can't see the Firefox bar that let's you block or unblock things. Twice it has popped up and I could click on the Close Ad button, but normally I can't see that to click on it. This just started this weekend. It looks like there was a Firefox update of some kind then. How do I get this gone??

I just updated to ff 51.0.1. My autocomplete dropdown list of suggested sites that comes up when I start to enter an address in the bar is now HUGE, with stars, little site icons and lord knows what else. I HATE it. How do I get it back to the neat and tidy one I used to have - no stars, no nothing (it IS set not to show bookmarks already.) I just want the address of the few sites that would fit up there, with just WORDS ! In a smallish font, not about 28 as it seems to be now. I don't want to have to add in stylish or anything.... Is this the allegedly AWESOME bar ? Awesome it isn't.

Apple Mac Mini (late 2012) Mac OS Sierra 10.12.02 (updated recently - since this update, Ant downloader has still been functioning o.k.) Firefox browser - 51.0.1 - 64 bit (updated Jan 2017) Ant.com video downloader 2.4.7.47 (recent version) This problem started after Firefox was recently updated - yesterday. I have reinstalled the Ant downloader several times & I have checked & updated all plugins (including Java) ... still no go. When I download & start any video playing, the Ant downloader's 'blue square with an arrow' in my toolbar - does not detect any video running/playing anymore.

I would be very grateful for you assistance please. Regards Peter

I have a persistent bug, on all devices I use FireFox on (no mather the build version). I am unable to use "ctrl + F4" on pinned tabs. I have check the info provided på Mozilla, regarding shortcut keys, and according to that info, the shortcut in question, should work on pinned tabs. The info regarding said shortcut from.: "https://goo.gl/2Zmr9T" is: // Close Tab

	Ctrl + W
	Ctrl + F4
 - except for App Tabs 

// Is there any way to fix this bug userside? or will I have to wait patiently for a fix?

Why is XUL being deprecated if its Firefox's main asset, power-source and difference from other browsers?

Taking https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/11/23/add-ons-in-2017/ as a representative sample of Firefox's community of users we can see 100% of negative reaction to the decision of deprecating XUL. So: is Mozilla reverting that decision? If not, why the hell not?

Also, none of those comments was answered by Mozilla, which is also a bit disrespectful, I think. Am I wrong here? Feedback seems to work one way only and not for the users' sake... :(

In most text pieces (Especially the URL bar) the text automatically scrolls to the right as I hover over it. This also occurs in any screen that has a side scrolling bar (Spread sheets is a good example) The screen doesn't scroll up or down when I don't want it to, but the scrolling always goes left to right without any action on my end
