    So all of a sudden firefox 3 deletes all of my bookmarks, and now it won't let me add them. When I do go to add them to my bookmark toolbar, every time I restart firefox, all of those bookmarks are gone. It won't let me add bookmarks when I go to the organize bookmarks page. Everything is greyed out. Can someone here help?

    Hmm sounds like something got corrupted. I would try repairing disk permissions in Disk Utility. If it still does not work, I would use AppZapper to delete Firefox, then re-install it. Good Luck.

    I used appzapper and now everything works perfectly!!!! thanks alot for your help :D

    When I dragged the app into app zapper, it showed a .plist file. When I searched in spotlight and my harddrive for firefox, this file didn't show up. Any ideas as to where this might be located? This might have been the problem.
