I recently upgraded Netscape 7.01 to 7.02 and all was fine. A few days later, I upgraded Mozilla from 1.3 (a or b, I don't recall) beta to the final 1.3 build. As a result, the bookmarks file from the Mozilla directory overwrote the bookmarks file in the Netscape directory, causing me to lose many bookmarks. (Both files have many of the same bookmarks, but many recently added to the Netscape file didn't exist in the Mozilla file). This is NOT a Netscape problem, as all was working correctly until I installed Moozilla 1.3. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1.Upgrade to Mozilla 1.3 2. 3. Actual Results: As explained above. The only way to reproduce it would be to reinstall Mozilla 1.3, and I don't know that it would happen on a reinstall anyway. Perhaps it only occurs when upgrading. Expected Results: The mozilla bookmarks file should be completely separate from the Netscape file and not affect it at all upon installation. This can have serious repercussions for those using both Netscape and Mozilla. I was able to recover most of my bookmarks from a several month old backup of the Netscape bookmarks file, but not all.
Netscape and Mozilla use the same profile and the same bookmarks unless you use a seperate profile for Mozilla 8as the Mozilla release notes suggest). And this is a Netscape bug because the current profile directory is : application Data\Mozilla\...... Netscape should use application Data\Netscape.. Do you "simple" lost your bookmarks file with 1.3. Is this correct ?
Marking Invalid by example of bug 114983, and also due to age. Please reopen only if use of one browser causes problems in a profile ONLY used by the other browser (this wasn't entirely clear in the report).
