Another option is to have Firefox always export a copy of your bookmarks every time you close the application.
To do this, follow these steps
1) Open the browser
2) Type "about:config" in the address bar
3) If you get a warning about making changes, click yes, to acknowledge you know what you are doing
4) Search for the Preference Name ""browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML"
5) Change the value from false to true
With that setting to true, every time you exit Firefox, it will create a file called "bookmarks.html" in the root of your profile. You can then copy that file to another computer and import as needed.
In my specific case, having that file always there, and always current, it makes my backup script that much easier. All I backup for Firefox is my bookmarks, so copying that file from my profile directory to my backup location is simple. I don't need to save my cookies, or other preferences with the browser. If I do rebuild my system, or re-install the browser, it is just easier for me to reset all my options (I don't make many changes anyway), and then import my bookmarks.
