Having had endless issues with Firefox and Adobe Flash Wave crashing, unresponsive plugins and scripts, I took a leap of faith and 'reset' Firefox just now. My hesitancy is that the last time I reset Firefox, all of my bookmarks disappeared. I was able to find them after a lot of searching, but I do not understand why Firefox would relocate them to begin with, making it necessary for me to mess with the old profile and create a new one.
Anyway, after this reset, my bookmarks didn't disappear, but they are an older 'version' of the current bookmarks: I don't mean the bookmarks themselves are an older version, but those I had added to specific folders before I reset Firefox this time are back in the folder I had moved them from. There are bookmarks I deleted that now appear again. And the bookmarks I recently added are not there.
Firefox says about resetting: 'The refresh feature fixes many issues by restoring Firefox to its default state while SAVING your essential information like bookmarks, passwords, and open tabs.'
My bookmarks are very important to my work and I am adding, deleting and moving them frequently--Firefox sets an expectation--without disclaimers or warnings--that it doesn't meet.
I suppose there will be suggestion to find my recent-now-old profile and create a new one, etc. ***And I'm going to need the exact instructions to do that***
And by the way, the issues with Firefox and Adobe Flash Wave crashing, unresponsive plugins and scripts that I was attempting to resolve with a reset of Firefox are still alive and well, after I have tried every single thing suggested on Firefox and elsewhere to resolve the issue. I need to go back to using IE.
