I've never heard of anyone losing bookmarks, and it's never happened to me.

Anyway, your Mozilla profile folder should be a regular part of your system backups.

I've lost mine before. It was very annoying

I'm assuming you don't back up your computer, then?

To put it bluntly, it's only a matter of time before your hard drive dies and every last bit on it disappears.

Back up your stuff.

I've got everything on my laptop backed up. This was on my old computer though, which wasn't backed up

Explorer crashes if you open to many tabs

I only use it if I am having problems getting firefox to access a site.

That has only happened once.

Loosing bookmarks is a common problem in mozila , but yeah backup is needed to avoid that but not everyone does that..

I have never had it. I have been running firefox for ages, and not backed it up once.

Not saying it can't happen though.

After some googling, it looks like bookmarks are, indeed, "lost."

But not gone.

It takes a little finagling to get them back - namely, opening up the profile manager or browsing to your profile directory in Windows Explorer.

This is what Mozbackup that comes from mozilla firefox does.

My point is just that you don't need a separate tool to back up your profiles beforehand. You can still recover your bookmarks after they're "lost" using simple tools already on your computer.

I much prefer IE over Firefox, I guess because I'm so used to using it. I only downloaded Firefox to see what it was like, and I have to say I like the format of IE more.

But Firefox is still cool though, I'm just more used to IE.
