Another question from the Luddite family. We're using Firefox and a new remote process for work has mucked up my system. When closing it down and then re-opening Firefox, it asked for a new user (I think) or the default user. We chose default user and now we have an old set of bookmarks from many moons ago. How do I get my current bookmarks back? I am old and stupid and throw myself on your mercy, please! Gabba Gabba Hey! Promote this thread!

Are you sure it's actually Firefox prompting the user, and not Windows or your work's remote access software? Check your connection settings (Tools/Options/Advanced/Network, then click "Settings".) If it's not selecting "Direct connection to the Internet", try selecting that.

Nope, that's not it. I think I misspoke in the first post, I think it's looking for the default profile, not user. How do I switch the profile to get my bookmarks back?? Gabba Gabba Hey!

Okay, I find two profiles there as you suggested, but how do I change to the correct profile in Firefox? Gabba Gabba Hey!

Mine only has one profile, but it has .default after it. In the profile there is a bookmark backups folder. If you check which one has the bookmarks you want, try changing the name of the correct one so it has .default? OR there's instructions here http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/profile#move For editing the profile.ini if you can locate the profile you want to use. My profile.ini is simply: [General] StartWithLastProfile=1 [Profile0] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/qlveb1o4.default It may be as simple as "Startwithlastprofile" value being set to 0 if you get prompted every time.

At what speed did you burn the DVD? When burning data, I've always believed that using the slowest speed is always the best. Not sure if that means anything, but hey, it's something, right?
