Mozilla

With the storms in my area last night...my computer did not get shut down properly. I think my surge protector may have helped protect it, but something weird did happen.

 

Poor little puter had a hard time starting up this morning. Once it did start up, I went into Mozilla to check email...but all email account settings were gone. Now...the default directory where these accounts were created still shows them. So, I know I didn't lose the email, I just need to make Mozilla SEE this email. Which I think I can do.

 

However, all my Mozilla Bookmarks have disappeared as well. I'm wondering if there is a default folder, like for the email, where all the bookmark info is stored. I looked in Mozilla help...no luck. I will check Mozilla's site, but if anyone here has any suggestions, that would be great!! Thanks!

Not knowing Mozilla I am not sure. BUT, my suggestion would be to try and reboot. You said you had difficulty booting and thats my 1st suspect at this point, a possible disk corruption could have occurred. If that doesn't help try a scandisk or something similar.

That has happened twice to me (when it still was only netscape), all i had to do was to reinstall netscape and it turned out ok.

 

Hope that is all you need to do (if not done :dance: ) :blink:

Cute avatar, Thomas. I did do a re-install of Mozilla, but that didn't help. I got the email problem fixed...but I can't get the bookmarks thing fixed. I will do another re-boot to see if that helps. Otherwise, since I don't have a bookmarks back-up, they're probably lost!!! The history is still there...I'll be able to salvage some of them.

 

Learning the hard way, huh??? :D

Well, it's confirmed...Bookmarks have been lost. I guess if that's the only thing I lost last night in that storm, I'll consider myself lucky!!

 

To fix the email, all I had to do was re-build all the accounts in Mozilla, then point them to the previous folders that have all my email!!

 

I think I'll be spending part of my day doing PC backup!!! :D

 

Thanks for the help, guys!

That happened to me a while back, lost all bookm arks in mozilla. I also couldnt add bookmarks to my toolbar. Reinstall didnt fix it so I switched to firefox.

 

I did some lookng on the mozilla forums, several ppl with the same problem, but not one person that knew how to fix it.
