My bookmarks disappeared. How do I get them back?

Posted

I have a Mac. Recently upgraded to Snow Leopard with the intention of upgrading further. Had some issues with Firefox and slowness so started my computer with the Operating System disk and repaired the disk. In theory, successfully. I had downloaded the latest version of Firefox prior to repairing the disk. It was showing up in the folders of other applications and in it's folder is a copy of all of my applications.

Now since yesterday I'm missing all of my bookmarks, toolbar, history and anything older than yesterday's usage. Is there anything I can do to get them back?

Thanks

Are you still using your original profile or was a new profile created?

Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.
