Firefox - disappearing bookmarks

Recommended Posts

Today all my bookmarks disappeared from firefox, don't know how or why, used the PC for a bit this morning, then when I used it this afternoon they'd all disappeared and a system restore didn't bring them back.

Anyone got any idea what could've happened and what I could do to stop it happening again as it's a pain having to find them again.

Check this path:

C:\Documents and Settings\James\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\e92f9u48.default

 

But with the obvious changes for you. There should be a bookmark.html file and a bookmark.bak file. Maybe the bookmark.bak (back-up file) still has them so check by opening it in notepad or firefox. If it does then rename it to bookmark.html to get your bookmarks back in firefox.

 

Hope this works for you.

Damn things happened again. only thing I can think of is every time it's happened is when I've booted the PC up twice in the same day, but that can't be it, can it?

 

Anyway, I've exported my bookmarks now, just to keep them safe.
