There are two ways of doing a backup for bookmarks. One is signing into your web browser, usually done at the top right corner with a person icon that you can click on. Second way, is to export them in the web browser as a html file that can be read by any web browser.

Signing into you browser will ensure that all settings, bookmarks, saved data etc. will easily repopulate (Highly recommended)– 

Sign into Chrome 

Sign into Firefox

You may also backup your bookmarks to an .html file that you will later need to import back into the browser –  

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More.
  3. Select Bookmarks and then Bookmark Manager.
  4. At the top, click More More and then Export Bookmarks.

Chrome exports your bookmarks as an HTML file. Use this file to import your bookmarks into another browser.
