Bizarre behavior by FireFox 1.0.7

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Gerald Orvis Davis, Nov 7, 2005.

  1. Awoke this morning with all my bookmarks gone. Nothing, nada, Zip.
    Tried to run firefox.exe -p and only found the default profile. All my
    plugins, extensions, remembered passwords for sites, ect,,,, work just
    fine, all the bookmarks are gone, including the ones in the toolbar
    folder.

    I do not have a backup of my profile, is there any known way to
    recover them???

    Close FF. Then using your file manager locate your profile and look
    for a file called bookmarks.html. Is it there? If not, then do you
    see one called bookmarks.bak? If so, then rename it to bookmarks.html.

    To locate your FF profile, see this:
    http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/edit#profile

    But first, if you're using windows, then your profile is hidden, so
    you have to unhide window files, and to do that see this:

    ITYM make a copy of it and rename it bookmarks.html.
