My problem is: Many times my bookmark subfolders just disappear.

If I do a search for a link in any of the lost folders at the top, find the link and select "open folder", the lost folders re-appear.

I imagine the folders are linked lists.

I wonder if the brower refresh or not refreshing is the issue. A display problem. Since they reappear, they are still there in memory. I doubt if they been written to the harddrive.

It is very frustrating. As I've read many others having similar issues, I think it merits attention.

Let them know to search for the link and open it in it's folder to reestablish the display. This IS NOT THE ANSWER ... but it is a work around.

I've systematically tried to troubleshoot it, but have found no clue for predicting when it will happen.

I was a programmer/analyst for decades. I imagine trying to keep firefox working is a real challenge.

Thanks Greg

The designers seem to be intent on making this as painful as possible. You'd think you could just open them, at least in text form. Wasn't that possible before? I can in Notepad if I want to look at hundreds of pages of gibberish that would take days to copy and paste over. In my updated Firefox it offers a Restore function but to do that I have to wipe out all my existing Bookmarks. Who dreams of this stuff? Why would anyone sane want to do that?

Hi,

I updated to the newest version this morning and found that it has delete all my bookmarks and delete all my saved data including login and password details to all the websites i use.

This is extremely annoying and makes me now not want to use your software. I got no warning about this, and it did not ask me to back up my data.

I imported my bookmarks from an HTML file but they are not showing even after I close and restart the browser. Where are my bookmarks? And furthermore, your instructions for importing them in the first place did not work for me because the sequence and pictures did not match what I saw in my browser. I played around with it until I found the import part. And yet, no bookmarks.
