I assume from the loss of your firefox bookmarks you´ve been installing Firefox 0.9

That can´t be as you can read here:
Firefox empowers you to browse faster, more safely and efficiently than with any
other browser.

But better read the fine print below the giant Download Fonts:


Double click the FirefoxSetup-0.9.exe installer to start the install.

NOTE - Do not install Firefox over the top of another Firefox installation. If
you want to install Firefox 0.9 into the same folder that you had Firefox 0.8
in, uninstall Firefox 0.8 first. Upgrading will be fixed in a future release.
