Lost Bookmarks in Firefox 2.0 Upgrade

I decided to upgrade to Firefox 2.0 despite it being officially out for only one day. The upgrade process was really quick. When I restarted Firefox, I noticed a huge empty space where my bookmarks used to be. I thought, no problem, I’ll right-click on the toolbar and enable Bookmarks. But it was already enabled. I went to the Bookmarks menu and none of my bookmarks was there.

Um, that sucks.

I looked in my Firefox profile to look for my bookmarks.html. Whew, it still had my bookmark info. I tried to import the file from Bookmark Manager but nothing happened. I tried overwriting a sparse bookmarks.html file with the fuller one. No difference even after restarting.

Enough of this.

I went to my Installs folder and reinstalled v1.5. Fortunately, it wasn’t a problem to downgrade. I was even able to upgrade to the latest 1.5 version from the Help menu.
