Where did the Bookmarks go?

  jack 11:09 14 Oct 2009

Fires up FireFox this morning only to find all my bookmarks had left the scene.
Did the normal checks in profile- no sign- not a sausage.
I did note that when I started this morning MS wanted to drop in 12 updates.
Could this be the cayse?
Is there any place the book marks have lodged them selves?

'when you did a search did you tick to show hidden files and folders under advanced'

That is always on.
I have just clicked on Bookmarks,Organize,Library in Import and backup.
In backup we have 'Restore'
In restore we have a list of the past 5 days.
when a date is clicked on we get
'This Will Replace all.
Click and get 'Unable to Process
The same for each date.

All Gawn
I guess I will have to start over.

I have concluded that, that clutch of Windows updates must have had some thing to do with this situation.
Even all attempts to restore - the oldest date is 1st of Oct- fail.

Lesson - before OKing anything system critical- back everything to an off machine location-
25 years of fiddling with electrontrickery and I still get caught out.
