just had v26 "installed" for me...it blew away all my bookmarks. Where'd they go, why'd it do that, and WTF?

What's to detail, you guys do everything automatically? Mac OS 10.6.8, iMac 3.06 gig i3, 8 gig RAM. Software updated, I went to use a bookmarked site to pay some bills...nothin', nada, zip, no effing bookmarks.

Stop upgrading your software and perfect earlier versions. Functionality over features.
