There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Late Night Clock-Altering
I believe the phrase is 'Spring Ahead, Fall Behind', or something like this? Now I understand why Autumn isn't used over here. Wouldn't be anywhere near as memorable. I've been spending the last few hours altering all the clocks and watches in the house. I think it's quite decent of me to give Jamie that extra little bit of sleep. Poor girl would have left an hour early and not found out until she got to work, otherwise.

I concluded an evening of disenchanting work with three films tonight, which is something I seldom do. However, the three films (Lucky # Slevin, Thank You For Smoking, Following) were interesting and I did enjoy the evening, but I also feel I could have done something more nifty with my time, if I'd really wanted to.

Still can't adjust to the fact Firefox will not remember any changes I make, I still get stuck with large icons and the bookmarks toolbar every time I start the browser up. No real time to deal with the issue. Recommendations? Uninstall/Reinstall job? Seems like I lost my bookmarks too, at some point. Can't recall where to find bits and pieces like that any more. I feel lost dealing with directories and such these days. Jamie would say this is a good thing.

I think I need to buy a cute little television.

Firefox usually makes automatic bookmark backups. Look in this folder, changing things like "goodcow" for your computer name, and the random profile name to whatever Firefox assigned you.

C:\Documents and Settings\goodcow\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\8iqouoeg.default\bookmarkbackups

Thank you! Finally found them. The folder was initially hidden and I didn't think Firefox would hide it away. Until I realised how likely it was that it could get erroneously deleted if they actually let that happen.

I only had about 8 bookmarks, apparently! Goes to show I limit myself to certain online places!

The likely cause is that your profile directory has become messed up somewhere along the way. Your best bet is to create a new profile -- just quit Firefox, drag the old one to your desktop (so you can pick through it for bookmarks, etc.), and Firefox will automatically create a new one when you launch it.

Yep, there we go, it's remembering things again! Thank you!

Now I have to actually browse some websites to find worthy things to bookmark. I didn't really keep many links there. I suppose I keep to the same places, and they're already linked in the LJ style.

Thank You for site

Thank you for your site. I have found here much useful information.
Good site ! ;)
