Bookmarks lost after reformatting my SSD. How to bring back the profile/bookmarks?

All Favorites disappeared after I reformatted the SSD drive which contained my profile folder. You save on your end, as well as locally (on my computer)? It just happened today, if that helps at all. I provide some information about the profile if it would make a difference. Thank you!

Mozilla is not a copy of your browser data unless you subscribe to the synchronization service. In this case, you should be able to use your credentials to sync to connect your Firefox newly installed to your account. I'm not an expert in sync, so that's all I can tell you about Sync.

If you set never sync, then you can always retrieve data depend on what kind of format you did. In some cases, Windows creates a C:\Windows.old folder with your old data. In other cases, utilities like Piriform Recuva may be able to rebuild some of the files. But then there are moments where it's hopeless...

You are ABLE to say that BEFORE I go through all the other MESS? HOW TO BRING BACK THE BROWSER MORE OLD?

    ISSUE INITIAL = I got SEVERAL plugins that WORKED! Then, I 'upgraded' {like you, LAUGHING, claim} to your version of Firefox 4 after promising to you that it is BETTER and, supposedly, an IMPROVEMENT over the old version. After you install the NEW one ~ IT TURNS OUT ALL MY PREVIOUS PLUGINS! Your WISHTHEYWUZ "PROGRAMMERS", very skillfully {and, in fact, HATEFULLY} uh, kinda "forgot" to make the new browser for COMPATIBILITY ASCENDANTE so that it does not DESTROY us, already, had ~ that WORKED before YOU put your hands on it! So, now, * HOW * I get the OLD version back? I think you need to KNOW what you can do with this new 'UPGRADE' which is, in fact, a LIE! UPGRADES don't take you BACKWARDS ~ make things WORSE ~ real upgrades make things BETTER! DUH-H-H!

    I, recently bought, a new HP 4500 printer and it came with an extension to capture video/plugin. Attempt to use, the program informed me that I had to use, either, an IC or a Firefox browser mentioning the version1.5 {I think it was} or later. The Firefox browser I was using was 3.something; then, everything was going along FINE. When I installed the video capture program, she added the plugin for the browser ~ PERFECTLY! I had too MUCH other plugins that worked and I used somewhat regularly! NO MORE! YOU and your TOTALLY INEPTE, WISHTHEYWUZ 'PROGRAMMERS' STOLE half of my COMPUTER! I can't, is more, USE ALL OF THOSE PLUGINS, simply because you "forgot" {say} to INCLUDE in your new browser version 4. WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THEM? WHY DON'T * YOU * WANT ME TO BE ABLE TO USE THEM, MORE?

    Apparently, YOU think that the computer world revolves around YOU, and YOU are its AXIS! You feel that YOU have NO RESPONSIBILITY to make YOUR programs in no way compatible with what is already available ~ according to the "advice", I noticed on one of YOUR pages WHILE REACHING THIS ONE, you said that everyone must adapt to YOUR claimed "improvements" that are just DESTROY!

    All I want is for YOU to either MAKE YOUR VERSION 4 COMPATIBLE; or advise me on HOW to get the EARLIER back version that * IS * compatible. Otherwise, I'll switch to another browser and advise all the others that I have one any influence to do the same for the good of their overall computer enjoyment!

    With the help of FM10. Need to create a PDF file only occasionally. Always used the plug-in included with FrameMaker. We decided to download the trial version of Acrobat X. used for awhile, but haven't seen the great advantages to buy. For the work we do, save it as PDF feature in FrameMaker works beautifully.

  • How to bring back the PHOTOSHOP TOOLS in bridge CS5.1?

    I used the PHOTOSHOP under TOOLS option in Bridge CS5 all the time.  I upgraded my InDesign to CS5.5 and with it I have automatically upgraded to bridge CS5.1 but now ther is no longer an option under TOOLS PHOTOSHOP.  When I try to open the oldest Bridge CS5, it automatically opens CS5.1.  How can I return the option under TOOLS in bridge CS5.1 PHOTOSHOP?

    Thanks for any information you can provide.

    How can I return the option under TOOLS in bridge CS5.1 PHOTOSHOP?

    It seems related to the different versions and their startup scripts. Bridge preferences Start Up Scripts has a script PS showing first check and see if the checkmark in front is verified. If this isn't the case, you must copy the old writing to this location. Don't know if it works and not knowing if you have a Mac or Windows. For a Mac there is library at the level of the root (so not in the user account).

    Here is the way: HD/Library/Application Support / Adobe / startup scripts. You probably have two folders, one called CS5 and called CS5.5 one. Try to copy (copy, no travel) the Photoshop script for the CS5.5 folder and try if it works. Theoretically, bridge 4.1 (that comes with CS5.5 - Yes, it is a bit confusing) should recognize scripts. And basically bridge 4 (CS5) and bridge 4.1 (CS5.5) are the same. But if you define Bridge 4.0 it will probably not recognize the new beginning of InDesign scripts.
