My old computer died and when I got my new computer, the daily bookmark backups stopped. How do I start my daily backups again?

My former computer was doing Mozilla daily bookmark backups and I was backing up that folder. Since my computer died, I successfully restored my bookmarks from the daily bookmark backup file (thank you), but with my new computer (windows 8 if that matters), Mozilla is no longer doing daily bookmark backups. I change my bookmarks and need to backup the bookmark file probably once a week. How do I get the daily bookmark backups to start up again? Someone please help.

I assume that you are talking about the daily JSON backups that Firefox creates once a day after starting Firefox.
You can check how many JSON backups are kept via the browser.bookmarks.max_backups pref (10) on the about:config page.

Note that Firefox also can create a HTML backup when you close Firefox by setting the browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML pref to true on the about:config page.

That backup is created by default in the profile folder as bookmarks.html, but you can set the file name and path via the browser.bookmarks.file pref on the about:config page.

The browser.bookmarks.file pref doesn't exist by default and you need to create a new String pref with the name browser.bookmarks.file and set the value to the full path of the backup bookmarks file.
