Restore bookmark backup:

Start > Run

Type in (Without quotes): "%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\"

Click OK

Click on the folder, something similar to "q6avd9bw.default"

Rename 'bookmarks.bak" to "bookmarks.html"

 

If there is no "bookmarks.bak":

Open the "bookmarkbackups" folder

Copy the most recent backup to the previous folder and rename to "bookmarks.html"

 

 

That should get back most, if not all, of your bookmarks.

I've heard of this happening to others before, but not very often.

They call them fingers, but I've never seen them fing, or ger. WOAH there they go!!!!!!!
