2001033004 trunk for Mac. In some cases of crash, Bookmarks.html gets replaced with an empty one at relaunch of Mozilla. I am trying to get the stack trace for particular crash that causes this. I will post it when I get it. I think I experienced similar loss of Bookmarks.html after crash in 0323 build.

Under Windows 98b, similarly, my history.dat file of perhaps 1.3Mbyte was replaced by a ~365 byte default file after a crash of my entire system with Mozilla launched but idle. The crash wasn't due to Mozilla, but Mozilla should not be leaving files for long periods in unstable states, the crash was probably several hours after the last interaction with Mozilla. This way lies madness. Recommend status for this bug be raised to critical. Losing a history.dat file is, for accessing something like the mailgate.org Usenet interface, like having a lobotomy, all clues differentiating accessed from unaccessed news articles are gone, which can reflect 100's of hours of "work".
My report of history.dat file loss has been promoted to bug 77514.

I believe this bug is related to or even a dupe of bug 74969, which is now fixed.
Changing OS to All and adding dataloss keyword. I am sure this is a duplicate of bug 74969. Can somebody verify this bug is still valid? I am tempted to duplicate it.
OS: Mac System 8.5 → All
nav triage team: We're tempted to dup it, too. In fact, we'll just go ahead and do that. ;-) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 74969 ***
