Does anyone know Since I forgot to export my  bookmarks, if I made a copy the places.sqlite file before formatting my hard drive,   Once I get Mozilla Firefox installed could I replace that places.sqlite with the one I happen to have copied from my old install and have my bookmarks once again?

Yes  I knew you could import and export..... but in my haste to reformat system  I forgot to do so.    I did happen to have a copy of the places.sqlite file which is where I was told firefox store this....  I wanted to know if I replaced this file with the one I happened to have saved if that will work as well?

Good news for you. Also learned something new :-)
This file can be moved to a different profile.
Path:
"%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\PROFILENAME.default\places.sqlite"

"bookmarks.html file is left in the profile folder for backward compatibility..."
