After the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro, I lost all bookmarks in FireFox. Favorite Internet Explorer are intact. How can I restore bookmarks firebox?

Internet Explorer Favorites are intact, but Firefox bookmarks disappeared. Shady shot from Microsoft!

OK, so I found my backups. That's how I did it.

1 make sure you can see hidden files/folders - in Explorer in Windows 8, click view, and then make sure that "hidden object" is checked

2. go to:
\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\c9i1rqwk.default\bookmarkbackups C:\Windows.old\Users\ < yourusername >

3. I copied the newest .json file from here to my office

4. open Firefox, then open the bookmarks library

5. click on import and backup, and then restore, then "Choose file". Identify the .json your desktop file.

That's what me sorted. If all goes well it can help you.

  • HDMI has stopped working after the upgrade to windows 8 Pro

    Hi all

    After upgrading my laptop to Windows 7 Ultimate for Windows 8 Pro (upgrade of the place) my HDMI output not working anymore.
    I use a nvidia Geforce 8200 M G graphics card, went to their website and downloaded the drivers of windows 8, but this did not help.
    Is what is happening when I plug the HDMI cable, the laptop screen goes black and there is no output to the TV I am trying to connect to. However, when you remove the HDMI cable, the laptop screen does not return to normal, but still rather dark. I tried pressing + P, but it does not help, and ultimately, I can't get the laptop screen showing something by a full reboot.
    Someone has a bright idea?
    Thank you!

    SOLVED (for me at least)

    I had the same problem after I upgraded my Acer Aspire 5745PG from Windows 7 to Windows 8. My second monitor via HDMI would not be recognized.
    Here's how I solved it: went to the website of the manufacturer (Acer in my case) and downloaded the NVIDIA for Windows 7 driver and installed it. Installation was a little buggy. I had to restore my computer to an earlier point, twice (make sure that you create a restore point before you start just in case where; google if you don't know how).
    In the end, the installation was successful. I plugged in my HDMI cable and second screen has increased as before I upgraded.

    IMPORTANT: Do NOT download the driver from the website of the manufacturer of the graphics card (NVIDIA, AMD, Intel,...). Go to the Web site (HP, Acer, Dell, etc.) of the manufacturer of your PC and find the. I tried the driver from NVIDIA that I have a NVIDIA Geforce Graphics card and it would not install. If you find that several display drivers for your specific PC model on the manufacturer's website you can try then one by one. I found 3 NVIDIA for my Acer 5745P. The second was the right thing.

    Good luck everybody!

    I installed the windows 7 one instead of. In any case, I fixed that by closing the Task Manager installation program, that the I started the software in the start menu, and believe it or not, it worked great.

  • Corsair Flash Voyager GT 32 GB USB 3.0 thumb drive does not work after the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro


    Since the upgrade of my Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x 64 Windows 8 Pro x 64, my Corsair travel GT 32 GB USB 3.0 Flash USB key no longer works when plug it into my USB 3.0 port on my laptop.

  • Windows XP mode virtual machine does not start after the upgrade to Windows 10


    After the upgrade to Windows 7 Pro for Windows 10 Pro, my virtual Windows XP machine (which was created from the "XP" mode in Windows 7) no longer starts.

    It shows:

    This system is not allowed to run "Windows XP Mode". Now, the virtual machine will be turned off.

    How can I activate the Windows XP Mode in Windows 10 Pro? I mean, I have not lost my right to run Windows XP Mode, just because I've upgraded to Windows 10, right?

    VMware Workstation 12.1


    How can I activate the Windows XP Mode in Windows 10 Pro? I mean, I have not lost my right to run Windows XP Mode, just because I've upgraded to Windows 10, right?

    I fear that the statement is pretty much on the mark.

    Microsoft caught only supported XP Mode in Windows 7, it has been since Windows 8.

    See also:

    You might be able to extract the folder integer vhd it and import it in VMware Workstation as a separate virtual machine. In the end, 'XP Mode' just was running a virtual machine in your Windows 7 after all.



  • After the upgrade to CC2015 Premiere Pro crashes everytime on the launch

    After the upgrade to CC2015 Premiere Pro seems to be the only program that does not work. It crashes every time on the launch.

    I am running Windows 8.1 on a laptop Alienware15.

    I have 2 video cards: Intel HD 4600 Graphics and AMD Radeon R9 M390X

    I have games updated for both driver.

    I'm not under a second monitor and I tried to uninstall the program several times and reboot the computer and logging in and out of the creation of clouds.

    I do not know how to log an incident report, but I would love to help with this problem since I was starting school in two days and I need this problem as soon as POSSIBLE. I have checked the forums and have yet to see a solution that doesn't involve no Mac and second monitors.

    I had already tried the shift + alt method nothing helps.

    I had a discussion with Adobe online help. After they disabled my graphics card, the program of Premiere Pro worked again. I was told to get a different graphics card of their 'approved list' of the graphics card. When I refused this option they renamed some system32 file for a "solution" to this problem. From what I can tell, they renamed the 'OpenCL.dll' to 'oldOpenCL.dll '.

    It seems to work now. So, until further notice, this problem has been resolved.

  • Volume controls on the keyboard after the upgrade to Windows 8

    I have a Touchsmart 520-1070 with the mouse and keyboard without wire factory.  After the upgrade to WIndows 8, the volume controls no longer work.  I tried the Recovery Manager to reinstall the keyboard drivers, but there is no driver keyboard under hardware drivers.

    Any report that they are installed and are working correctly and that the drivers are up to date.

    Has anyone else seen or solved this problem with a Touchsmart computer?

    The instructions below were provided by HP support.  This has restored the function on the keyboard volume controls.  The referenced below drivers are drivers IDT high definition Audio Device.  I am not sure that it was necessary to reinstall the audio drivers.  It can only had to remove the USB dongle and back to restore the functionality of the button.  Note: the USB dongle is located behind the VESA Panel to the back of the PC.  No tools are required and the dongle can be removed and replaced without shutting down the PC.  VESA panel removal requires a bit of a steady hand, pulling the lip which is close to the connections on the rear panel.

    Hi @Ron9871,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I see that you are unable to get your printer HP Photosmart C6280 wireless printing. I'd be happy to help you and don't forget to come back to this thread and check "Accept as Solution", if I have successfully helped solve you the problem. If you want to say 'Thank you' to my effort to help, click on the "thumbs up" to give me a Kudos.

    I would like to try the steps in this guide, "offline" Status Message printer (Windows 10).

    If the problem persists, you may encounter an IP address conflict. It's a good idea to assign the printer a static IP address outside your DHCP range. For example, some routers default DHCP is located between to So, I would use

    • Print a Page of Network Configuration menu of the printer front panel. Note: the IPV4 IP.
    • Type the IP address in the browser to bring up the SAP.
    • Choose the network tab, then wireless on the left side, and then select the IPv4 tab.
    • Select Manual IP.
    • Enter your IP address manual (
    • Enter for the subnet mask, except if it is different.
    • Enter the IP address of your router that sits on the Network Configuration Page) for the default gateway.
    • Please, click on manual DNS server. For the preferred DNS Server Manual please enter and the Alternate DNS Server Manual, please enter
    • Click on apply.

    Please restart the router, the printer and the computer in this sequence.

    If you're still having problems, please download and run the print and Scan doctor, it will be probably diagnose and fix the problem you are experiencing.

    What were the results when you ran the Print and Scan Doctor? (she print or scan, error messages)

    You can try to change your WSD printer port by a Standard TCP/IP port.

    To do this, you will need your current IP address printers.  The Network Setup page shows the parameters of network for the product. To print this page; Press the button of network () on the control panel of the product.

  • My laptop camera image on the upside after the upgrade to Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

    I have a laptop Asus G50Vt - X 1, which is a 64-bit computer. It had Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit installed on it and the unit worked properly with him. I ran the update of Windows 7 Advisory on this matter and he said I could upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit. After the upgrade to Windows 7 Professional 64 bit the images from the camera are all upside. I contacted Asus about the problem and they sent me the drivers updated, but the images are still upside down. Pourrait Windows 7 cause this problem as I know that it worked fine under Vista?

    I also noticed that my dvd/cd player and external hard drives don't stop the execution after that I have quit an application. When this happens, I can't eject the cd or remove the drive from the computer.
