Will backing up my bookmarks by exporting them to my computer allow me to access the bookmarked pages even if the websites are taken down the same way as saving them as a webpage will, and if not is there a way to do this using Firefox?
Firefox automatically creates backups of your bookmarks, which can be helpful if your bookmarks are lost or missing. To recover them, follow the instructions below.
For more information, see the Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer article. For other solutions, see the Recover lost or missing Bookmarks article.

Not that I know of.
You can look at extensions like these:
You may want to browse through available add-ons (Tools > addons). for instance, Pocket! may be, what you are looking for.
