You were almost right Jeremy :)
but firefox is still using the name of the version 0.5 for the
directory: .phoenix

You can find the bookmarks there:

ukvewqi8.slt: is the name of the profile, if you have several profile
you will have several directories...

Btw, you should have a look at the firefox extension, they have a great
one which makes backup of your bookmarks! It saved me one or twice in
the past...

Hope this help!
