How do I save my bookmarks prior to uninstalling and resinstalling Firefox?
Is there a way to save the Bookmarks before I uninstall and reinstall Firefox? I am trying to clear out the Add-Ons box and uninstalling Firefox and NOT saving my settings seems likely to be the only way.
But it says I will lose my Bookmarks if I do this. So how do I save them first and how can I put them back in later?

It is easy to backup the bookmarks and I would recommend doing it on a regular basis anyway. There are also utilities that will help you do that see
Backing up and restoring bookmarks
See Lost Bookmarks and as a cautionary tale with a happy ending the thread - thread mentions backup utilities
Note the not saving settings will delete all the profile type data from ALL versions of Firefox installed on that computer. I am not trying to dissuade you from doing a clean re-install, only advising caution, especially if there are passwords etc stored by firefox, or if you have more than one version installed
