Lost them all

(Friday, February 16, 2007)

I’m furious. Came back, and noticed all…I do mean..ALL my Firefox bookmarks are G-O-N-E!!! EVERYTHING….gone. If that’s not bad enough, I’m having trouble bookmarking now….which is troublesome. I guess I’ll need to reinstall it again. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

I really can’t believe it. All my important sites that I’ve bookmarked, for years….is all gone. There must be over a hundred sites in it….some fresh…however mostly obsolete. Just a week ago I realize I needed to manage my bookmark by deleting old, unused sites, and organizing the others in meaningful categories. However, due to severe laziness, I didn’t. haha. Even if I did, it would be tough to delete the bookmarks that I won’t be using now, but feel that I ‘might’ need it in the future (which I probably won’t need it anyway).

Oh well…I guess this ‘accident’ could be a blessing after all. Instead of going through each bookmark, and deciding whether to keep, or to delete it, now I’ll be starting with a new, fresh, EMPTY bookmark. That saves a lot of work doesn’t it? Yippeee!!!!! :-D

    I had the same trouble. I got mine back by looking in c:\documents and settings\[user name]\application data\mozilla\etc etc and drilling down till I found a directory called bookmarkbackups. Apparently 5 days worth of bookmarks are stored there. This saved me. I am however having some problems with adding a bookmark, but this is a starting point and at least you will get back your bookmarks.

    Thanks for your reply. I added a tutorial on how to restore firefox bookmark after I managed to find a solution to that problem.

    I had problems adding new bookmarks as well. Found the solution also, but was too lazy to include it in the tutorial…sorry :) However, I’ve just updated that tutorial, you can click on the link above to get to the tutorial on how to fix your current problem.

    Hope this helps.

    I’ve lost all my bookmarks as well, have reinstalled Firefox and still can’t add bookmarks properly. You get a blank page icon pop up, no name to the bm. Honestly, I’m sick of IE and FF. Windows sucks. Next laptop is going to be a Mac!
