Lost bookmarks

This is a draft of proposed changes to the article, Lost bookmarks. Alice Wyman 04:35, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

Looks good. It's weak on describing how to find backups, however. This is where a lot of people need step-by-step handholding. At a minimum, the section does not mention how to view the bookmarks files, and that's essential. Otherwise there's a bit of guesswork and maybe trial and error. I don't know if there is any OS that shows file size and date by default. They just get a cartoon view.
You might have a look at how I did it. --AnotherGuest. 22 Dec 06
I'll take a look but I thought that Majken and Np wanted to eliminate all the "background" information and concentrate on the causes and solutions to lost bookmarks as simply as possible ..... Majken created a Bookmarks article, which now contains its own sections on "Stored bookmarks and backups" and "Opening the bookmarks file". I was thinking maybe it might be better to expand that article and just link to it instead. Alice Wyman 00:43, 24 December 2006 (UTC) P.S. I just added more detail to the "Opening the bookmarks file" section of the Bookmarks article to include the instructions you wrote in your Draft, on viewing the backup in the browser for Win2000/XP users using %APPDATA% to get to the bookmarkbackups folder. I think we should just link to it (see the PM I sent you). Alice Wyman 02:47, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Plugins article

... is very much needed, because a new profile doesn't solve all problems. Thanks. I added a sentence on Flash, which you almost have to incinerate to get rid of. AnotherGuest. 3 Oct 06

I did some tweaking on that sentence, too :) .... Thank you. I appreciate someone else's point of view. I think I want this article to go in the direction of plugin diagnostics through removal or disabling of plugins, with links to the main plugin articles for information on uninstalling updating, extennsive troubleshooting, etc. When the article is done I'll link it to the Standard diagnostic - Firefox article section on plugin issues.

Firewalls article

see Firewalls This article replaces the "Firewalls" section of the Error loading any website article with a link, to shorten that article, mainly to facilitate combining all three Error loading websites articles without making the combined article impractically long.... see Talk:Error_loading_websites.
