    What the hell happened to my Firefox?!

    Alright, heres what happened...I went to go lay down with my girlfriend for a little bit, Firefox was working just fine before I went in to my room. Nothing was open except for Photoshop, and nothing was recently downloaded. When I came out though, I opened Firefox, and every single one of my add ons that I had installed popped up, acting like they were just put on. Then I go to my favorites, EVERY SINGLE BOOKMARK is GONE.....I mean there was nothing in there. Most of my add ons were turned off, the theme I had disappeared, and even my email notifier was gone and everything on it was gone. It was like Firefox was recently just installed. But the weird part is that the whole history is still on here.

    So anyone know what happened? Or has this happened to anyone else?

    FUCK YOU YA PRETENTIOUS DICKS!! BAN ME!!

    Ya ya... this happens to me about once a week. What you need to do is open up your bookmark manager, import bookmarks from file, then computer, documents and settings, application data, mozzilla, firefox, whatever it's titled as, bookmark backups, 12/26/07 .
    Should make everything good as new!

    I have never had that happen for me except for when it was these 3 reasons:

    CCleaner (a popular junk file cleaner program) will actually mess with your browser's cache. it affects chrome to high hell, but it did clear my bookmarks on FF once, but I had them backed up.

    someone else in your house touched it while you were absent... duh.

    FF automatically updated (somehow?) while you were away. when that happens, sometimes you can get a wipe like that, especially say... jumping from ff2 to ff3, some themes and add ons aren't even ff3 compatible yet.
