    Last night, I had a large list of bookmarks in Mozilla (1.4). This morning, I updated my system with the new security system update, and iSight software. Tonight, I have no bookmarks. Between the time I updated my system, I was at work, and not at this computer (which was off). Have I lost my bookmarks for good?

    OS 10.3
    Mozilla 1.4

    What in God's name are you talking about? You lose bookmarks by deleting your bookmarks file. Your bookmarks file should be /users/YourAccount/Library/Mozilla/Profiles/deafult/xxxxxxxx.slt/bookmarks.html. Here's a tip. The Finder has the meu selection that will help you enormously in these situations. With the Finder as your frontmost application, go to File>Find.... It really works wonders.

    And another thing, upgrade to Mozilla 1.7a. You can afford it.

    Swear to God, I never touched that file. I did use the find feature, and it is nowhere to be found. I do have a back-up on an external disk somewhere, but it's 5-6 months old. I think I've totally lost my bookmarks.:(
