Hey L.G.

Search your C: drive for a file "bookmarks.html".
They should be located in C:\Documents and Settings\your name here\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\numbers and letters.default

You may need to open the Bookmark Manager and do File, Import.

Dear Geekgirl,

I'm sorry, but it not help. All I see in this file is:

Bookmarks

Personal Toolbar Folder

mozilla.org
mozillaZine
mozdev.org

Mozilla Project

mozilla.org

The Mozilla Organization
Mozilla Application Suite
Mozilla Firefox
Mozilla Thunderbird
Feedback

Community & Support

mozillaZine
Mozilla 1.x Support (mozillaZine)
mozdev.org
Mozilla Plug-in Information (mozdev)
Mozilla Extensions (mozdev)

Search the Web

Google
Google Groups
Google News

That is all I can find there.

Did you do a search for files and folders?
I apologize I wanted to ask this in reply before but forgot, why did your computer restart? What was you doing at the time?

I found this while searching the interent

    In the very unfortunate event that your bookmarks are lost, you will not be able to restore them unless you have backup. You may try to reclaim some of them from your browsing history; open the History window (go menu, history), right click (option click on Mac OS) on the Web address you want to bookmark, and choose Bookmark this Link.

    To prevent this from happening, we advise you to back up your profile periodically.

You can find this info HERE

Dear Geekgirl,

Yes I done a file search, but all I found was just the info that I posted above - only links to Mozilla site. Maybe You can offer me to use another, more stable program, because, once, I lose all my e-m,ail from Mozilla...

Thank you for help.

Regards

I don't know why it restarts. At the time when PC restarts I made the CD copy and tried to connect to FTP server. Mozilla was just minimized...

You may want to try FIREFOX 1.0
Make sure to uninstall all of Mozilla.
Do you not like IE?

Hey L.G.
 Use the profile manager to switch Mozilla back to the correct profile, or a different profile see if it brings back your bookmarks .....worth a shot Wink

I can't to change profile - there was just one...
IE - no. I don't like it. I like in Mozilla this option - tabbed interface.

Anyway. Thanks for help.
