Windows 7: Firefox deleted all bookmarks when I updated to newest version (v11.0)

Firefox deleted all bookmarks when I updated to newest version (v11.0)

I updated firefox to the newest version (11.0) and it asked me to import bookmarks from Internet Explorer, but I only used internet explorer once (to install firefox when I first got my computer, the only thing IE is good for) and I dont have any bookmarks in IE anyway. So when firefox started all my previous bookmarks got deleted. I can not remember the majority of the websites addresses and I need some of them for research papers and school work. Is there any way to recover the bookmarks or am I screwed?

Until a better solution comes along, and I was facing the same situation, I would do a system restore, save a copy of the bookmarks and re-update FF.

FF does an auto backup everyday. Look in:
User/(you)/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profile/xxxx.default/bookmarkbackups and just import the .json file from within FF.

to save yourself upset in future try using xmarks, it will sync your bookmarks to a xmarks account and you can access your bookmarks from any pc by signing in to xmarks. you can also have your desktop and laptops bookmarks synced this way. its nice , a bookmark i save on the laptop at night shows up on the destop pc's browser when i boot it up the next morning.
