I Just Accidentally Baleeted All My Bookmarks
« on: February 24, 2009, 06:55:42 PM »
So, I was cleaning up my Firefox bookmarks, thinking the recent bookmarks were symbolic/relational bookmarks. If you delete a program shortcut (which is just a relational link to the program), it doesn't delete the program. Thinking the same principle applied to the Recently Bookmarked folder, I deleted them all. And all my bookmarks.  :'(

Well, at least it gave me motivation to go through my feeds which Firefox checks every x hours (I'm not sure how often it is set to check. Maybe every 4 hours.) rendering Firefox useless for like 10 seconds.  >:( (No, it's not a long time. But it seems longer when it is at an inopportune time.)

haxors because no one cares about me enough irl to be interested :'(

I just deleted the most frequently viewed feeds folder and it had the effect I was initially expecting.   :o  ??? >:(

I love you Firefox. Even more than Opera. So I don't understand why you must toy with me like this. I give you lots of attention. I even recommended you on my website... until Adsense stopped referrals. But that's besides the point. Why, Firefox, why?

Edit: And all the links in my Bookmarks toolbar. arg!@#$%^&

The Foxmarks plugin for Firefox keeps your bookmarks on a server and lets you sync them from several different computers.  Even if you only have one computer, it would still save you from this kind of problem.
