Question

Bookmarks become duplicated, rearranged, deleted, moved or all the above after every PC cold start.

Since 8/26/12 in one folder bookmarks and sub-folders either disappeared, were rearranged into other folders or "Unsorted Bookmarks", duplicated, old ones from older Netscape folders appeared in newer Mozilla folders, bookmarks and folders were duplicated but the bookmarks in them were either older ones from the past (see Netscape) or were deleted or all the above. The last Netscape folder (version 8) and the Mozilla one have flipped positions, (the latter used to be above the Netscape one). This occurs after every cold PC start. After several trouble shooting attempts it is now happening in all folders. I have to backup the bookmark file into a separate folder in My Documents as the regular backups all seem to be corrupted in the same way. I even purge the data in SYNC and that has done nothing to resolve this. I have deleted the old bookmarks from Netscape 6/7 and the problems still occurs. Deleting duplicates makes things worse. The Places Maintenance add on worked only 2 consecutive days; It is no longer effective. I have to restore the backup I have made each time I use Fire Fox after a cold start.
