I Nuked My Firefox Bookmarks

with one comment

While playing with Firefox profiles, I accidentally deleted all my profiles. Murphy was an optimist and, of course, I had no backups.

Apparently, Firefox deletes profile files permanently without moving them to trash first. I tried using “Free Undelete” to recover my profiles (which were in a non-standard location in first place – somewhere on my H: drive). Most of the files were recovered but my bookmarks were all gone, along with a few of my Firefox extensions.
