I recently started having problems with my Firefox. First all my bookmarks have disappeared and I am unable to restore them. When I try to add a new bookmark, it does nothing. The window pops up but when I click "ok", nothing happens. And two days ago all my cookies disappeared. And Firefox doesn't seem to be making any new ones? I really like Firefox and like to keep it. Can you help me to fix these problems?
My first thought is a profile issue. Try here C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles - see what profile it's using. Try here C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles - see if they match If not, there should be an old profile stored there that would contain the bookmark backup and cookies.txt Or just go here http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/profile and let the experts help you.
Emma: what inspired your rant? I'm looking into Macs because they seem safer against viruses and hackers. I also like having the ability to run Windows on a Mac if I need it (which I would, for various games I enjoy playing).
