    Well my wife was using her desktop about a week ago when it froze. She shut it down by the power button on the tower. But after rebooting all her bookmarks were gone. Shes been using it since and saving bookmarks but was wondering if there was anyway she could get her old ones back. Or is she out of luck?

    you can try clicking on "bookmarks > organize bookmarks" and then clicking "Import and Backup > Restore" and trying one of the previous dates if they exist.
     
  3. the actual file location is here (if ur on xp):
    C:\Documents and Settings\"user name"\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\"profile name"\bookmarks.html
    u can see if they are still there.
