  • bookmarks gone?

    I moved my entire hard drive over to an external drive and re-installed XP yesterday. Now I can't find my old Firefox bookmarks.

    According to this page I should find them in: XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

    except I can't find Application Data! I have show hidden files and folders on.

    I ran search for places.sqlite

    So now what?

    Aw ****, I know what happened. Because Windows was crapping out, I did an xcopy from the command line, and didn't use the switch to get the hidden and system files. Firefox sticks the bookmarks in the work directory of the profiles, which is a hidden directory. Crap, all gone.

      Should use the bookmark export/backup functionality. Or Foxmarks or something.
