Both my History and Bookmarks have disappeared. "File is being used by another..bla..bla" "Your antivirus may be interfering with your History & Bookmarks". Firefox "help" says to create another data base via my profile page. *That feature does not exists ** How a bout a quick fix link? Or do I have to dump Firefox and use another browser??

I always suggest doing a normal shutdown and restart of Windows as the first step to release any locked files and hopefully resolve any transient file permission issues.

If that doesn't resolve it, the steps to remove the locked/corrupted file are in this article: Fix "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" error message.
