Windows 7: 7077 Breaks Firefox 3.07 and 3.08

7077 Breaks Firefox 3.07 and 3.08

You can't restore bookmarks. When you locate the restore file .json, Firefox crashes.

It worked fine in 7068. It looks like MS is going backwards again.

You could import the bookmarks.html instead.

Yes, you can do that, but they end up in alphabetical order instead of the order you originally set them in. If you use the Restore feature, they restore exactly as you had them.

That is one of the features that Firefox is much better at than IE.

I think it depends upon a few things, but I suppose that if you upgraded that some of your user directories may actually be 'locked' due to permissions error b/c you changed the computer SID even if you used the same login and PW combo as before.

I have found that happen more than once.....

Since I actually use a separate HD for my profiles, I have to manually add them to Fx upon a reinstall, and I have seen this more than once, though, oddly enough, not in my actual folder that houses my profiles - but YMMV with this advice.

I did not change the SID. I upgraded over a working version of 7057. Everything else seems to work fine.

MS must have changed something that affects Firefox bookmarks. Because of their dwindling IE users, they may have done it on purpose. I have lost all faith in their integrity.

this is why you should install a clean copy and NOT upgrade.
i don't know why people keep reporting bugs from an upgrade from one pre-release build to another.
if you upgrade, you are definitely going to introduce bugs that aren't really bugs.
my imported bookmarks worked fine.

They are REALLY bugs. If you don't know the difference between "import" and "restore" then please refrain from your criticism. This is a bug in v7077. MS allows upgrades and therefore they should work or MS should not allow an upgrade!
