    So I got a blue screen of whatever (not the death one) and when I rebooted, firefox acted like it was starting up for the first time. Preferences gone, all my bookmarks gone, history gone, etc. Is there any way to get my old bookmarks back?

    thx

    You might be able to see if it exists first:

    check your profile...c:doc & settings/user name/app data/mozilla

    Not sure what you're going to do with it once you find it though.

    EDIT: On second thought, you're fucked.

    Actually that kinda did work! Turns out Mozilla makes backups of the bookmarks folder once a day and keeps 5 days worth. So I took today's backup. Woot, one thing fixed.
