    Scan your PC for malware, trojans and all that stuff. Reinstall firefox and backup your bookmarks regularly.

    I have had that occasionally.
    There is normally a backup of bookmarks in your
    [drive]:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\964d4cps.default\bookmarkbackups

    Hit bookmarks: organise bookmarks (might be manage my bookmarks on an older version)
    File -> import
    point it at said backup.......

    Edit: the export option is arguably the best way to back up the bookmarks.

    See that hole in your wall?
    I've seen this happen a few times. Seems to be a firefox bug, not a virus of adware/spyware.

    What I do is uninstall Firefox. Delete the profile folders (in [UserFolder]\Application Data\Mozilla and [UserFolder]\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla). Then re-download the latest version and reinstall it.

    Yeah, but may be he wants software compatibility, a box that costs less than 4 grand and to also retain his heterosexual status.

    Cain't do any of that with Mac.

    My firefox caused me to have BSOD just 20mins ago and all my plug-ins reset themselves again! I hate that.

    if firefox causes you to have bsod, it would have to be a software incompatibility or trojan or something

    Ah, I thought I lost my bookmarks after installing an extension and then getting a BSOD. I guess it's too late to restore since I already made a bunch of my own bookmarks =/

    I've used Firefox for a while. Only a few times have my bookmarks vanished and I know why- it's because of my network but I fixed it.
