There used to be a folder called "From Firefox" I had quite a lot of bookmarks in it. That folder has disappeared, taking all those book marks with it. Why?

Using Windows XP. This afternoon that folder existed. I went online a few minutes ago and it is gone. I went through the Backup and Restore process but most of those book marks are very recent. The forty or fifty I lost weren't restore-able. No idea why this sudden drastic change.

I followed the instructions for importing from another browser, but when I get to the point that should allow me to import the IE favorites, Foxfire displays the function, but it is in light print and does not allow me to select that function. I'm not interested in reentering all the sites in Foxfire's Bookmarks.

I am trying to transfer my passwords and login details from FF3.6 on my old PC with XP to FF 9.01 on my new PC with Win 7. I have done this before with older versions and XP to XP but not with 9.01 which seems to have a different file structure. Maybe I am wrong but not wanting to screw my PC I thought it better to ask first!

Thanks

I've done this before, but now I can't even find an export function. I am on version 9.0.1 on Windows 7. Has this capability been eliminated? I don't want to sync, as I won't be using the old computer any more, and I don't want all of my information out on someone else's server, no matter how secure it's supposed to be. Help?

I closed my file/edit/view etc and the address bar, and now there's no way to open them back up again. No way to get to internet tools, etc. Whenever i right click anywhere (the same thing i did to close them) i either get options for tabs (as i'm clicking on the tabs bar, the highest point in firefox now that there's no other bars) or just options for web pages when i right click them. there's nothing i see that i can do without reinstalling and losing all of my settings. Help?

In the latest version of Gmail, no search form history will save, but it does in the old version of Gmail. I have checked all clear history settings and they are all correct, as it does not delete any other form history including the old version of Gmail. This only occurs in the new version, which is why I've continued to use the older version. I have also checked for plugin conflicts and there are none. I'm on WinXP-SP3 using the latest 3.6.6 version of Firefox.

The Search Engine Bar offers and collects Search Engines seemingly at will, and personal choice settings are not retained. Until recently it always held my Yahoo Engine as my primary, but now it has been taken over by Ask. Even if I delete it, it returns and takes over. Has Mozilla made some kind of arrangement to allow this behavior? Sorry, but it sure looks like someone made a dominance deal to have this forced on people. Why don't the choices we make stick? This is incredibly annoying. If you have some kind of back door fix involving digging through code to re-write, please don't bother. I appreciate the creativity but I'd rather have this working as it should to begin with. And if you're selling out to forced advertising, come clean.
