This keeps happening to me every time it updates to a new version (even if I do a manual update), I've installed This, Will see how it goes!

If you go to Bookmarks -> Organize Bookmarks then File -> Export in the window that pops up, you can export your bookmarks to a HTML file for backup purposes, then if it happens again, you can simply import them from that HTML file.

:-( Thats not good, just got a message up saying firefox will be updated next time it is loaded up - hope I dont lose my bookmarks

Bookmarks are stored in a file, on a standard pc install:

c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile

I too have had this really annoying issue, so i took to backing mine up (manually) once a month or so just in case

Mine was deleted never mind all porn sites anyway. :giggle:

Well we have upgraded on my laptop and the computer, and all bookmarks are still there
