I tried both when it run and when it was dead. I guess that firefox
found something strange with the old files and replaced them with new
default ones. I didn't try to add a new bookmark before replacing the
files so I don't know for sure if firefox had a copy somewhere of it or
replaced it with a new file.
Next time I install a new system I backup my home dir as tar archive
instead of an ordinary DVD to get everything stored correctly.

If you mean that you tried copying your bookmarks file over and it
wouldn't use it and carried on using the wrong one (as far as you're
concerned), that's usually because you've had Firefox running while
messing with its files. It needs to be completely dead while doing this
sort of thing.
