Uninstall/reinstall shouldn't affect bookmarks so long as you don't tell it to delete all personal information.
You can also export the bookmarks to be safe - Firefox/Bookmarks/Manage Bookmarks/Import and Backup/Backup.
Once reinstalled, if the bookmarks are not there, go back to "Import and Backup" and choose "Import"

I would suggest using a bookmark manager addon to backup your bookmarks in case something happens to them. I use eversync but there are others.

Yes when I was using FF on an XP I re-installed one time and all bookmarks were still there.....

My favourite version of FF is 1.5.0.5 (Thats what was on there and I like it alot)

Recently I used my dads Mactop and it has FF48 which seems ok also.....

I cant believe they have 48+ versions now!!
