I am using Firefox portable 3.6.8 in Vmware on Mac. Recently I removed Macafee from computer. Now Firefox says bookmarks and history are unavailable. Instructions to restore from "learn more" button fail as search results do not reveal "default" info. Attemtped to restore bookmarks from ookmarks/organize/restore results in error "unable to restore from backup"

Sounds like places.sqlite is corrupted or locked by other software and can not be accessed by Firefox.
