In the process tab of the task manager, there is a box saying "show processes from all users". Check it, it may show up.

If you plan to uninstall Firefox, go for Waterfox The fastest 64-Bit variant of Firefox! . Superb for a 64 bit system !

If you install waterfox with firefox present, it will be done automatically. Waterfox is firefox actually, but it is a 64 bit version !

I am very happy with it. Much faster, and really nice.

Do you mean you saved all your links in a message?... If so, the easiest way is to open them one by one and bookmark them again.
