Everything in my firefox has disappeared.

My bookmarks, my cookies are gone. When going to hotmail.com using firefox, my email address was filled in but the password was empty. It is the same for going to my.yahoo.com. I have to enter everything again.

I have also lost my bookmarks. Its almost like firefox re-installed itself and deleted whatever information I had stored.

How do I get everything back??

do you have anyone else that uses your computer....they may have deleted it?
or it may have been a new update for ff?

you could always try a system restore...if your cookies are that important :eek:

have you downloaded the Firefox 2.0 'Beta Candidate 1? What used to be code named 'bon echo'. lost all my info also. it did not transfer over from Firefox 1.5.0.4.

not much you can do except start over loading name/password.

....beta was released last night. but 'officially' came out today.

You might have some backups of your bookmarks. If you have Windows XP, look in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxx.default

bookmarks.html is your bookmark file and bookmarks.bak is the backup. You should also have a folder called bookmarkbackups that will have some more.

You might check to see if another profile was created.
Start> Run> type: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -profilemanager then hit OK.
Then if multiple profiles are listed, select another profile. If you can't open another profile if listed, then follow this guide to unlock your profile.

I keep forgetting to update the post I make. Problem solved. It seemed I have two versions of Firefox on my computer.
