Upgrading to V4 has lost all of my Bookmarks, I still have the restore files in my profile data but they will not load, I have tried importing the html backup file too but it didn't work either. How can I get them back?

Ok this is bizzare!
Thank you for your response, I went throught each and every step without any luck, even got the recovery programme, and painstakingly tried to sift through all that mumbojumbo to find what i needed. finally found the bookmark bit, but it had been fully overwritten :(, so on reading about previous ff versions, found the sqlite thingys, and they were relatively unscathed(partly written over, but saveable apparently TG), saved them to adiff drive, amongst other possibly good folders. Then looked up how to install them, and it said to close FF, and install to profile folder.
So i tried to close FF, and the original problem from a few days ago, where it asked me if 'i was sure i wanted to close this window as it has X tabs open', popped up again. This is where 'open blank page' selection was set, over 'open previous tabs'. Wanting to save that info on how to sort out these friggin files, I reset the Option to 'open previous tabs', and closed FF. After unsucessfully searching for the profile folder on my laptop, i opened FF intending to search online for where i could find said folder.
AND BANG, surprise surprise, the FF I had just closed with only tabs open about finding out what the heck to do, had disappeared, and instead my original saved tabs were up, and my bookmarks are there..... I am gobsmacked! what the heck just happened there???
I have made 3 back up in different folders now, of those friggin bookmarks. I am weary now tho of shutting it all down.... what if its back to the other pages I had with no bookmarks, tomorrow :(

  • I reinstalled Firefox and lost bookmarks from my computer, how can I get them back (sync ?)from my android phone ?

    My bookmarks are really gone from my computer but I have them in my android phone.
    I've tried to use this sync but it doesn't work. How can I get them back to the computer from my android phone ?
    I have checked also backup files but they are really gone.

    Hi penami,
    Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you lost your bookmarks. In order to check if they are still there you can look in the profile folder on the computer [[Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox profiles]]
    As for syncing from the android, it is possible to add the account to the desktop and the two should merge.

  • I just upgraded my iPhone4 iOs and lost ALL Phone Contacts! How can I get them back?

    HELP! I've been using my iPhone consistently for ALL phone numbers, since I have serious memory problems due to fibromyalgia. I upgraded my phone last night finally, having moved my photos out of it I had the space to download and install the upgrade.
    I got a nasty shock this morning when I tried to make a routine call and found ALL of my phone contacts missing. They don't seem to be either in the cloud or in the phone. What happened? It said it was storing them in the cloud but they're all gone! How can I get them back?
    IF this normally happens, why should I ever upgrade? Seriously! I didn't think to copy all of it out manually before upgrading, I'd upgraded once before without any problems. Addresses and other details gone too. I've got four numbers in "Favorites" but no context for them beyond location by state. I don't even know who they are - can't recognize just the numbers.

    Thanks, but I checked iCloud and it has none of them.
    If it backed up to my laptop, that died and I just got the new computer. The one that's crashed won't even boot, so there's no way to even tell if it was syncing the contacts along with all the phone photos. Literally happened at the same time - it was because I had the new computer that I was finally able to pull the photos off the phone and make room for the upgrade. It had refused to upgrade for lack of space for some time.
    I had thought it was set to sync to iCloud but it vanished from BOTH my phone and the cloud. That's why I'm so angry about it.

  • Hi guys i update my IPOd 4G with the new iOS5 .I made a Backup and I load it but all my Photos are lost how can I get them back ??? thx for Help

    Which photos? If the missing photos were synced to the iPod then you have to get them from where you got them the first time. Synced photos are not in the backup that iTunes makes.

    They're not lost, they simply don't show because you settings ask it not to.

    thank you

    The backup does not include synced media like apps and music. You can redownload them by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    If you used PhotoStream get them from your stream. See:

    Hi
    Welcome To Lenovo Community
    I presume that you have got preinstalled windows 7 System, Which you upgraded to Windows 8 now you have downgraded to windows 7. I have few questions & suggestion
    How you downgraded to windows 7 using Recovery System or using windows OEM Disk
    I am presuming that you have used the OEM disk, I would suggest you to use the OKR feature to restore to factory default by press F11 button during Post i.e.. When Lenovo Logo is displayed and follow onscreen instructions
    Have you created a set of recovery media? If yes you can use these to recovery your system
    Note: Before using above steps please ensure you have backed up your data
    Hope This Helps
    Cheers!!!

  • Ive just updated my iPhone4 to the IOS5 software and i have lost all my apps? why? and how can i get them back?

    Ive just updated my iPhone4 to the IOS5 software and i have lost all my apps? why? and how can i get them back?

    When an iPhone updates, it wipes the whole device clean and then reinstalls the software and then the backup. Obviously you didn't create/couldn't create a backup either via iCloud or iTunes. You can get your apps back when you go to App Store>Updates>Purchased and download the apps you want.

  • I updated my iPhone 5c to iOS8 and lost all my calendar events.  How can I get them back?

    I updated my IPhone 5C to iOS8 and lost all my calendar events.  How can I get them back?  I had it saved to the cloud but then changed it because I did not want to save everything to the cloud.  I changed it back and still don't have any events.

    Are they still listed on your device when you go to Settings>iCloud>Storage>Numbers?  If so, they should still be in iCloud but you may need to contact support to find out why the Numbers app isn't able to access them: http://www.apple.com/support/icloud/contact/.

  • I lost all my bookmarks,after switching to 3.5 silent how can i get them back?

    i lost all my bookmarks,after switching to 3.5 silent how can i get them back?

    Clarification:
    I believe now you potentially lose all extensions, plug-ins when you use the new reset function, but you will let me know.
    If that is the case, your find corrupt file method maybe better. However, I reviewed the two help articles and there appear to be more files than just the delete search.json file and a possible search.sqlite file in the Firefox Profile Folder. I am confused. Then I have to find the folders. I think help articles mentioned how to find the profile containing the files, but not sure.

    You need to talk to clash of clans first. The game should have a support link.
    If they can't/won't help you then you turn to iTunes support.
    There seem to be a lot of issues with in app purchases in this game because not a day goes by that someone doesn't post a thread asking something similar.

  • My friend took my phone and tried to guess my password to unlock it, and he locked me out of my phone for a minute, but when it unlocked and i tried to use my phone all of my apps, photos, all my data had been deleted. how can i get them back?

    As Ocean20 say, your only shot at recovering the photos and data is to restore from a backup (with iTunes if you took the backup with iTunes, through iCloud if you took the backup through iCloud).
    The erasure is to prevent your data from falling into the hands of somebody who takes your phone and eventually guesses your password. If you feel that the inconvenience caused by this feature and your friend outweighs the trouble that somebody could cause if they got possession of your contacts and other data, you can change this behaviour.
