    Does anyone know where the folder that houses the actual links for the favorites in Firefox is located?

    It is bookmarks.html file in the profile folder.
    Start> Run> type %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles then hit OK.
    Open the default folder and you will see the bookmarks.

    I did as you stated, but when viewed...it does not look as expected.
    Is it not visible the way that the Internet Explorer links are visible?

    If you want the link of any bookmark that is listed, right click on the bookmark in the list and select properties and you will see the link.
