    Exclamation Firefox in openSUSE11.2

    Hi,

    I just installed 11.2. I had 11.0 before with /home on different partition. When I started firefox, it seems, that profile files were deleted and new profile was created (i.e. lost all my bookmakrs and saved passwords ).
    Did someone else also observed this behaviour? Is it correct behaviour?

    Thanks

    Well if you deleted the old /home then it will be gone.

    Post the result of this from a su terminal

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    You may still have your old /home somewhere

    No. The home with all my data stayed untouched.
    Therefore I have separate partition for / and /home, so if I want to reinstall, I just back-up /etc and reformat / partition only.

    very strange bug..

    check /home/[you]/.mozilla/firefox/[random].default/bookmarks.html
    and see if _maybe_ your bookmarks are safe there..

    if not, just restore that file from your most recent backup..

    hmmmm...don't know how or why there are profile files....so, i can't
    help there..
