My Mozilla Firefox 3.5 bookmarks have vanished and I can't redo them. Please help as I had quite a lot.

TO: northumbria61 - Thanks for answer.

I finally remembered I had signed up with XMARKS - it was great, I have got all my bookmarks back.

Use Mozbackup for a local copy.

Xmarks was almost lost a couple of years ago.

Not sure why you are still on FF3.5.

I can understand not upgrading to v4 onwards, it caused a few problems (non-compatible add-ons etc).

Now on v13. Mostly seems to have settled.

3.6.28 is the latest of 'the old versions'

See Filehippo page, right hand column. Download and install over any later or earlier release.

ie easy to chop and change. Mozbackup in case of unlikely problems first.

Later versions continually fix security issues. So it is better to upgrade at some point.

EDit: v4 onwards also has FF Sync. Does same as xmarks.
