    Click start/search/all files and folders and type bookmarks. Click search.

    You should see a list of all your bookmarks, the firefox bookmarks will have a little firefox logo on them.

    Locate the latest file with a date next to it. Right click on the file and select copy, paste the file to wherever you want. Close the search window.

    Open Firefox and click on bookmarks/organize bookmarks. Click file/import and check the from file button and click next. Browse to where you pasted the bookmarks file and click open. You should now have your bookmarks back.

    Regards Howard :)

    Doesn't work

    I have the same problem, with my bookmarks disappearing.

    Howard, you are assuming that somehow firefox has simply stopped using the correct bookmarks file. I tried your suggestion, and found that all the bookmarks files on the drive were either a) the one currently in use, which is empty or b) old backups that I did of the bookmarks file. The problem isn't that firefox forgot where the bookmarks file is; it seems to have actually *deleted* the bookmark data out of the bookmark file.

    Btw, this thread is over a year old ;)

    Unfortunately, Bapudi, howard has left these forums so can not help you.

    If Samstoned's post doesn't help you then start a new thread in our Misc. Software & Utilities forum
