You mean you didnt copy a backup bookmarks.html somewhere else?

I know how you feel, nothing like losing a bookmarks file containing over a hundred links and then having to manually find them all over...

............from the mozilla forums.

I've heard this often happens. I use firefox, never happened to me.

Anyway, when I change/update the browser I let them all go, good time for a spring clean.

Another thing to consider is if you use CrapCleaner and have it set to remove too many things...check the settings to make sure you aren't killing them there...I don't know about any other "washer" programs, as I only use CC.

I did have that same problem until I reset the defaults in the CLEANER>> APPLICATIONS tab, and all I have checked in Mozilla/Firefox are :

DOWNLOAD HISTORY and
INTERNET HISTORY
CC leaves the other stuff alone that way.
