Windows was having major problems on my laptop, and I had to reinstall it. Before I reinstalled, I transferred most of the files on the machine, including my Firefox folder, to my desktop. Here is my question: is there anyway to recover the bookmarks that I had saved on my laptop? The Mozilla Firefox folder is saved to my desktop, which I don't normally use and doesn't have the Firefox browser on it. Is there some file in the Firefox folder that contains the bookmarks?

Yes Using a bookmark backup file You can also use a bookmark backup file from one computer and restore it on another computer. This is useful if you can't Sync the two computers, for some reason.
The bookmark backup file can either be a manual backup (see above) or one of the automatic dated backups located inside the Firefox profile folder bookmarkbackups folder. Place the bookmark backup file on your transfer media (e.g. a Flash drive) and copy it to the desktop (or any location) of the other computer. You can then restore the backup from the Firefox Library window, using the Choose File... option, as described in the Restoring from backups section above.

You can recover your bookmarks as long as you have a backup of your Firefox Profile Folder.
On your old installation of Windows the profile folder would have been here:
On your new installation of Windows you can open the profile folder by going to about:support in the url bar and then clicking on the 'Show Folder' button next to Profile Folder.
Inside the Profile Folder is a sub-folder called 'bookmarkbackups'. Inside that is a set of automatic backups. You can restore these backups to your current Firefox installation by following the steps here:
I hope this helps. Let me know if not.
Looks like I'm screwed. I didn't save the Appdata folder. I only saved the Mozilla Firefox folder.
Maybe you have a folder named as "Profiles\[number].default-[number] ". In this folder you must select the folder "bookmarkbackups" and inside this folder you can see your backup of bookmarks. Choose the last bookmark backup in order of date and copy this file in your laptop and the follow the instruction in this guide for Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer
I'm afraid all of your personal information is saved in the Profile folder (inside AppData).
See here for more info on the data in Profile folders:
Did you use Firefox Sync? To synchronise your data with another computer? If so you can recover the data from the other computer.
If not then I think your only option may be to try recovering the profile folder with a tool like Recuva. If you are lucky this may be able to recover one of the bookmark backups off your hard drive. But because the new installation of windows has been written over the top I don't know how good your chances are.
Good luck recovering it. Let us know if there is anything more we can do to help.
