Default Computer Help!!!

Well, while I was recently closing some processes in my Task Manager, all my bookmarks suddenly disappeared in Mozilla Firefox. I had hundreds, and now I have to build them all up again unless someone can help me find a way to restore them???
Thanks in advance
Simon

I don't think so that they can be restored now..Mozilla have some problems about such features..bookmarks usually disappeared in my Mozilla Firefox too..

Now i have started using opera & its working fine..

Damn, thats a real shame. I had around 100 in total, and I've tried to remember some but I've only got about 30 at the moment. It's so frustrating, as it was my collection of my favourite sites over a period which lasted over a year, so it's a shame to see them disappear for no reason

I also experienced such problem in mozilla. All my bookmarks disappeared and I can't find a way to restore. Right now I install gspace and I backed-up all my bookmarks then upload it to my gmail account.

I've never had this happen to me yet fortunately but I've heard of it happening to quite a few people.
No idea if it's fixed in firefox3 but I hope so.

Even though it doesn't help restore the ones you've lost, I'd recommend you get a firefox extension called foxmarks which save all your bookmarks onto a server and you can download them from any computer. Also means you can have your bookmarks to hand if you're on someone else's computer :)
