The directory to your profile got changed. Typically it's in:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.s8k
Or some such. What happens when you install a new copy of Firefox is that it may create a second profile directory default.s9r
or some thing different. Check the Profiles folder to see how many profiles you have. Check out the bookmarks.html
file in each directory to see if it's your old list. Copy it to a safe place for backup. Then copy it into the new profile directory that Firefox is using.
Another thing you can do is copy the entire contents of your old profile into the new profile folder. This will then carry over ALL your old settings like skins, default homepage, bookmarks, download-directory, file-type handling, etc.
