  1. Yesterday I had to reinstall my OS. I run Firefox so I used MozBackup to backup all my bookmarks, extensions, settings etc etc. The backup was successful and before I reinstalled my OS, I test the backup with a restore of my profile and it seemed to work fine.

    Hmm; current version of FF is 39.x so your profile is not likely to be compatible.

    find the backup, and try to open with ... and select notepad. Object is to reacquire your bookmarks. The extensions would have to be reloaded regardless.
