I have just upgraded from 2.0.20 to 3.6.8. The contents of my bookmarks toolbar folder have disappeared. How do I get them back?

1) The upgrade has not created a new profile. I still have only one.

2) I appear to have kept my cookies OK.

3) I have somehow managed to retrieve the old bookmarks list, though I can't remember how I managed this and can no longer find the instructions. What I have lost is the contents of the bookmarks toolbar, which is most important to me. My bookmarks.html file is still present and intact.

4)I have decided, at least for now to revert to Firefox 2. I had the sense to keep a copy of the setup file!

It is possible that the imported Bookmarks Toolbar bookmark folder shows as a folder in the Bookmarks Menu folder.

If that is the case then you can move (Cut & Paste) those bookmarks to the regular Bookmarks Toolbar folder.
