Mozilla Firefox - bookmarks have gone crazy!

  wildhouse 00:25 16 Dec 2010

I have had to re-install Firefox as it kept crashing. Re-installed no problem, and re-imported bookmarks from IE8. They all appear to be there (hundreds of them!) but when I go into an actual bookmark, it has the wrong website address - in fact most of the bookmarks have the same 3 or 4 addresses! Any idea how I can sort this out? (Have beem told to get rid of my profile and re-import from IE but can't see how to do that in Firefox Help pages)

Do the links still point to the correct website in IE8?

In FF Bookmarks are kept in a .json file
C:\Documents and Settings\YourNameHere wildhouse\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Thanks ashdav - have downloaded Hitman Pro and will try that in the future. Thanks for the link to where my profiles are lotvic - deleted the folder and re-imported from IE8 - it worked!
