Default Firefox Users?

Hey guys, I'm having problems with my Firefox browser, and it'* pissing me off.

It seems that Firefox enjoys arbitrarily deleting my bookmarks, I load up the browser and they're all gone. Which is frustrating to say the least, and even more frustrating ATM because last night I compiled all my sources for a big paper that is due, and now they are gone.

Anyone else have/heard of similar problems?

Haven't had that problem personally, and I just upgraded to the new version (just released) with no problems.

Much smoother and quicker. I use Firefox on my home PC because it hates IE for some reason.

Yeah I just upgraded too, and I really do like Firefox but this problem is annoying to say the least. Bah at least I can go through the history to find my documents still.

I wish I could complain to someone, but its a free program :P

If you loaded the feedback agent when you upgraded, you can complain.

How do you go about doing that?

And Will, yeah I informed them of the issue, but it'* not like I can get really mad and hop and scream and yell, like I would if something Microsoft f-d up :P

How do you go about doing that?
Bookmarks --> Manage Bookmarks


... hit File --> Export, and it'll save as a .html file. To restore bookmarks, do the same thing, just with File --> Import instead, and Import 'from file'.
