I bought a new PC after a motherboard crash, but I have plugged the HD to it to get all my files. How to find the bookmarks and to get them to the new PC?

Hi, I just had the same last week.
Bookmarks are in :
- bookmarks and history: places.sqlite
- bookmark backups: compressed .jsonlz4 JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder
Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

fyi for the future :
Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder both in a hidden location, so make sure to look in the correct location. Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data in "AppData\Roaming" (Root Directory on about:profiles).
Location used for the disk cache and other temporary files in "AppData\Local" (Local Directory on about:profiles).
You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
- Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Directory:
Windows: Show Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
