If I uninstall/reinstall Firefox, will I lose my bookmarks?


I want to uninstall then reinstall Firefox in an attempt to correct the following issues: (1) Firefox keeps prompting my user names/passwords, thus creating a security hazard; (2) Firefox is continually crashing. I want to know whether uninstalling firefox will cause me to lose my bookmarks, and if so, how can loss be prevented?

crashing started a few weeks ago; prompting started many months ago.

If you have submitted Breakpad crash reports then post the IDs of one or more Breakpad crash reports (bp-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx).

You can find the IDs of the submitted crash reports on the about:crashes page.
You can open the about:crashes page via the location bar, like you open a website.
