Firefox crashed and lost all my bookmarks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My computer froze all of the sudden so I restarted and when I started up Firefox all my bookmarks were gone. How do I get them back? If I can't, is there some way to backup some sort of folder where all my bookmarks/extensions/toolbars are stored?

A good idea is to have your bookmarks on IE, so incase this happens you can just import them over to firefox again

Man, whenever weird things happen like this to my PC I always have that thought that maybe someone is hacking and messing with my PC (and my mind).

I'm not sure how to get them back TBH. However for future reference you may want to get a program called MozBackup. It can backup profiles for Firefox and Thunderbird that way if this ever happens again or you have to reformat just run it to restore the backed up profiles and you're good to go.

another way,and pretty simple. Export your bookmarks-save-then email then back to yourself or a alternative email you may have. I use Gmail so I always have an up to date back-up of my bookmarks.
