FF updated to 3.6.8 today. I misread the install question re: importing bookmarks and selected 'do not import'. I meant to not import any from IE, but to keep my FF bookmarks. The only Bookmarks.html file I can find on my drive is the empty default one from the new upgrade. Is my old file saved anywhere so I can restore it? I'm running Window XP. Thanks for any help!

When I go to Help & Troubleshooting & click Open Containing Folder I get a Windows Explorer window that shows the file path including Used-Edward-AppData, etc. But when I click on the little triangle to the right of Edward the drop down menu does not include AppData and if I just go into Windows Explorer and Users-Edward, there is no AppData folder. So I cannot overwrite the profile file with the saved profile info from my earlier laptop. The folder symbol next to Edward has a lock on it but I don't know what that means or how to unlock it.

I had told the computer to delete cookies when I shut the computer off. I followed your route to Tools > Options > Privacy > History and saw that Accept all cookies until they expire was already checked. BUT unchecking Clear history when Firefox closes reversed the problem (I had checked it -- now I unchecked it). Thanks for directing me to that location. Yahoo! keeps me logged in now!

Trying to stop immediate History Library updates

This is really a minor issue, and I think it might just end up being a new feature that needs to be added to the next version of Firefox. But my problem is, oftentimes, I'm browsing my history library looking for sites that I looked for maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. I scroll down quite a ways, eventually find what I'm looking for, and then click on the site to open it. The problem I have, which is really merely an annoyance, is that when I click on one page, my library immediately exits out of whatever time frame I'm currently in and sets the time frame to "Today" and highlights the most recent site I've visited, which of course, is the one I just clicked on. The reason this is annoying is that when I'm browsing my history, there are usually 3 or 4 or more sites that I want to re-visit, usually all from around the same time frame. It becomes very tiresome to have to re-click on the correct month or week, and scroll, scroll, scroll, once again, each time I want to re-visit a site, because every time I click on a site it re-sends me to "Today." I wish there was someway to change my history settings so that it wouldn't do this and that, regardless of whatever websites I decide to visit, my history library always stays in the place where I last left it. I hope someone is able to understand what I'm trying to say. Thanks for any help you can provide and don't hesitate to ask for clarification!
