pages started to load without and bookmarks appeared to fill up, I closed browser, on reopening it said profile already in use. Shut down system, on starting FireFox from desktop icon, all bookmarks lost. 

Reproducible: Didn't try




THERE WAS THREE YEARS OF GENEALOGY BOOKMARK I HAD TRANSFERRED FROM NETSCAPE AND IE
AND NOW THEY ARE ALL GONE. I MADE A SYSTEM BACKUP LAST MONTH BUT HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THEY ARE IN THE BACKUP OR WHERE TO LOOK. IT APPEARS THAT FIRE FOX OVERWROTE MY PROFILE SOMEHOW.
