My apologies if this is the wrong forum for this. But, a week or so ago my bookmarks in firefox vanished. This has happened twice in the past making this time the third. The two previous times I had nothing of real interest bookmarked, so I didn't pursue the issue. This time, however, I had a lot of bookmarks that I would like back.
I did some searching on the web and found out that under firefox's profile folder the bookmarks are saved as backups. I was glad to see my bookmarks hadn't been lost forever. So, thinking they would remain there as a preferment saved location I just continued about my business. Well, I wasn't aware that only the recent five bookmarks were saved, so apparently the previous file was overwritten. My mistake.
I'm wondering if there is a way to go back further than the previous five saves, or if my bookmarks are lost and overwritten for good? I changed the setting so it will hold a higher maximum number of saves but that still doesn't help with my current problem.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
