update deleted settings and bookmarks!

Posted

I Just updated from 17.xx to 18.0.2 yesterday. Today when I logged onto my computer, Firefox icons were gone from my desktop and when I find and run Firefox directly from the mozilla firefox directory, my bookmarks , homepage, and other settings are all gone! WTF?!?

Additional info, I'm using an SSD as my boot/program drive and had altered F to use my data drive (D) for temporary cache files. I'm guessing it has something to do with this, but seriously... no reason it should.

This can be a problem with the profiles.ini that caused Firefox to create a new profile. *http://kb.mozillazine.org/profiles.ini_file *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Recovering_a_missing_profile *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox

Thank you. Was our fault after all. Should have been obvious no doubt, but I haven't dealt with other profiles before.
