Thank you

Bruno, not withstanding what Bill has said, can you give us a bit of detail about what you were doing at the time that you lost the bulk of your bookmarks??

Hi, I do agree with what Bill has said;  Sometimes we just cause ourselves
to suffer unnecessary aggravations for reasons that are not always clear ;-(.

Thank you for that reminder. While I do have recent complete backups of everything I have, and I do moderately often put my bookmarks in a file for easy recovery, I checked and my export of my address books was months old. While I could recover the data from the "save everything" backup, it certainly isn't painless to do so. Therefore I backed up each of my address books in both ldif and tab-separated format, for easy use in any of several ways.

Also, my bookmarks may not have been that important to keep.  Here is what
I was doing: I was trying to do what Bill had suggested but before making a
backup I successfully sorted my bookmarks then, trying to make that backup
file, whoops, everything was gone without me realizing what really happened.
When I looked at bookmarks again I realized that I had lost most of them
except 10 of them..

Thank you both for trying to be helpful, but I think we might as well rest the case.
