Lost Firefox bookmarks..any ideas?

  bof:) 19:01 02 Sep 06

Hi All, it seems that all of my Firefox icons have dissappeared from where they should be.

Firefox itself seems to have regressed to an earlier version of itself.

Have I lost my bookmarks for good?

Yes I know I should have backed them up :-(

Try looking in c:\documents and settings\<username>\application data\mozilla\firefox\profiles\<profile folder>\bookmarkbackups

Just did a search and found bookmarks.bak, renamed it to bookmarks1.html and it opened in the browser ok so if you have lost your bookmarks.html but can find this file that is the way to go, just rename and copy to the folder c:documents and settings\yourname\application data\mozilla\firefox\profiles\something.default . Put your name where appropriate and substitute the mixture of letters and numbers that prefix the default file in profiles

Hi all, tried system restore...didnt work.

I've used the command %APPDATA% in start/run to get to the bookmarks.bak file, couldnt open it so renamed it bookmarks1.html as suggested.

File contains only short list of bookmarks that were made a few days ago when all my bookmarks where there. (No I didnt alter any settings then)

Firefox version is showing as 1.0.7. which is an older version. My version was uptodate.

Puzzling isnt it.

Anymore thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all, never actually solved this problem but I have done the following:

1. updated Firefox tolatest version.
2. spent all evening trying to replace main bookmarks, which I've now done.
3. backed these up to 'My Documents' and a floppy disk.
