firefox favorites

  1. A strange thing happened, every time i save a favorite, it deletes it when i close firefox. I am going to uninstall and reinstall. Just thought i would share this cause it is the strangest bug
  2. I've run into that as well. Not sure what's going on so I'm keeping all of my bookmarks on a google toolbar. Nice thing is, they transfer so whatever PC im on, if I login to google, I have my bookmarks.
  3. I started using Delicious to save my bookmarks. It also saves your existing firefox bookmarks as well so you can avoid losing all of the ones you've collected.

    Once you try it, you will never go back.

  4. I'm assuming you are referring to bookmarks? I've had that problem occur on many past occasions.

    Always go to your profile folder and retrieve the backup copy quickly to restore them and you'll be ok.
  5. hmmm, i save many bookmarks, have never seen that or noticed it.

    the bmarks are now saved in a SQL DATABASE, so maybe theres some corruption going on for some.
  6. I know what you mean, it has happened to me, too with firefox.

    I use delicious now as a backup and it's great, highly recommended !

    no problems if you use the foxmarks plugin.
