Yes, if you can get on long enough. Click your bookmarks. Choose 'organize bookmarks'. Then Export Bookmarks. When I do it, it saves it to my pictures. Then when you get reloaded you can Import them from the saved cache. You may not need to do that unless you are moving to a different computer though. Firefox should have them stored even if you try another version. I use an older one, 3.6.2, I think.
Sorry, edit: To change your homepage. Open E, then click Tools --> options --> general. The option to make E your homepage is there.
