    My Mozilla bookmarks have almost completely disappeared. I'm now left with a fraction of things carefully accumulated over years of work. Is there someplace they may be hiding? Help Please!

    Romadoc, now you have discovered why it is vital to make an archival copy of your bookmarks and your address book when you do your weekly/monthly backups!

    Saves lots of frustration when Windows causes problems.

    As for your present crisis, try clicking Tools> Switch Profile and see if there is more than one profile listed. Click the upper one and see if that doesn't bring you back to a full set of bookmarks.

    Then, as soon as you can see them, click Bookmarks> Manage Bookmarks> Tools> Export and send that list to the desktop or My Docs--wherever you can be sure to find it again.

    Then save a copy of that to CD-R when you back up your important stuff next time.

    You'll be glad you did!!!

    Best regards,

    Eric
