Help me! I Lost My Firefox Favorites!

Firefox WallpaperHi! Seems like the world didn’t come to an end after all, so it’s back to work for poor little me! Into each life and all that. Anyway, a reader sent me question that no doubt applies to many peeps out there, so it’s worth putting up here and giving the best answer I can. Here goes:

Poppy: I created a new user, opened Firefox, and there are only the default bookmarks. There is an “import” function, but it only offers to import Internet Explorer bookmarks. Is there any way to copy/import between users on the same machine?.

If you created a new user, Windows created a brand new user profile to go along with it. Firefox links to these profiles so that when you log in to Windows and run Firefox, it can load the preferences that were set up by that user and that includes bookmarks, aka, favorites.

To get your missing bookmarks back, do the following:

FirefoxOpen up Windows Explorer and type %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ in the address bar and press Enter. A list of profiles will appear at the top of the Start menu. If you have multiple accounts, you will have multiple profiles, and they do not use the account names to identify themselves. It will look something like ‘c4aqz7b’. The account you’re logged in with will have a ‘default’ extension, so you don’t need to look there. Check through the others one by one until you find the bookmarks you want. In fact, this approach works for any customization you’re looking to recover, and me being the sweet git I am, I’ve included a list of all the goodies and the folders/files in which they lurk.

Once you find the missing data you need, simply copy the file from the old profile to the same place in the new profile, restart Firefox and then Bob’s yer uncle! (That’s a Brit thing… Google it…)

What information is stored in my profile?

Firefox Breast TattooBookmarks and Browsing History: The places.sqlite file contains all your Firefox bookmarks and the list of all the websites you’ve visited.

Passwords: Your passwords are stored in the key3.db and signons.sqlite files.  Remember, delete and change saved passwords in Firefox if you’re not going to use them anymore. Just to be safe.

Site-specific preferences: The permissions.sqlite and content-prefs.sqlite files store many of your Firefox permissions (e.g which sites are allowed to display popups) or zoom levels that are set on a site-by-site basis.

Search engines: The search.sqlite file and searchplugins folder store the search engines that are available in the Firefox Search bar.

Personal dictionary: The persdict.dat file stores any custom words you have added to Firefox’s dictionary.

Autocomplete history: The formhistory.sqlite file remembers what you have searched for in the Firefox search bar and what information you’ve entered into forms on websites. The downloads.sqlite file remembers what you have downloaded.

Firefox Eats IE Cookies: A cookie is a bit of information stored on your computer by a website you’ve visited. Usually this is something like your site preferences or login status. Cookies are all stored in the cookies.sqlite file.

DOM storage: DOM Storage is designed to provide a larger, more secure, and easier-to-use alternative to storing information in cookies. Information is stored in the webappsstore.sqlite file for websites and in the chromeappsstore.sqlite for about:* pages.

Security certificate settings: The cert8.db file stores all your security certificate settings and any SSL certificates you have imported into Firefox.

Security device settings: The secmod.db file is the security module database.

Download actions: The mimeTypes.rdf file stores your preferences that tell Firefox what to do when it comes across a particular type of file. For example, these are the settings that tell Firefox to open a PDF file with Acrobat Reader when you click on it.

Plugin MIME type: The pluginreg.dat file stores Internet media types related to your installed plugins.

Stored session: The sessionstore.js file stores the currently open tabs and windows.

Toolbar customization: The localstore.rdf file stores toolbar and window size/position settings.

User styles: If they exist ( they are no longer used in the latest version of Firefox), the \chrome\userChrome.css and \chrome\userContent.css files store user-defined changes to either how Firefox looks, or how certain websites or HTML elements look or act.


Well, there you have it… It’s really not all that complicated after you’ve done it once or twice. You may want to copy or print this post as it will come in handy!

It’s now time for The Boyfriend and me to open a bottle of wine, get completely naked and cuddle on the rug in front of the fire…  Of course, if I have anything to say about, it cuddling will just be the start!

Love ya all, guys and gals@!

Newtown School Shooting

1 comment

Newton ConnecticutFirst and foremost, my heart goes out the families in Newtown, Connecticut affected by the senseless tragedy that took place this morning. I cannot help but get emotional and teary eyed at the thought of the innocent slain children and the teachers who died trying to protect them.

But what really pisses me off are the wingnuts saying that society’s lack of religion is to blame. Lack of religion? Bollocks. Nearly all serial killers and mass murderers were raised in twisted fundamentalist homes and were sexually inhibited by their STRONG religious upbringing. Virtually all of them were abused as children, either physically, emotionally and/or sexually. Serial killers and mass murderers tend to be narcissistic; everything that has gone wrong in their lives is always the fault of someone else. They read the Bible and in some twisted way believe they are doing God’s work, once again justifying whatever they plan to do as not being their fault. Like the wife-beater who after beating the living shit out of his wife says “See what you made me do?” They also tend to be suffering from depression and paranoia. Here is where serial killers and mass murderers diverge.

David BerkowitzSerial killers hide in plain sight; they are the average next-door neighbours, they have jobs and families, attend church, drive their kids to soccer games; just another suburbanite. Mass murderers tend to be loners, feeling isolated from other people and are emotionally and socially stunted. If they manage to have a relationship, it is marked by jealousy, suspicion and abuse. According to the FBI, these people don’t go through their daily lives as sane as everyone else and then snap. They usually plan their atrocities for months or years prior to carrying out their plans. Sometime along the way they simply decide “Today’s the day.” Now get this little fact about mass murderers: In 75% of the cases, at LEAST one person knew about the plans and did nothing to stop it, usually saying they never for a moment believed he would actually do it.

John ListJohn List was raised a devote Lutheran by his strict, fundamentalist parents. He was very active in his church and taught Sunday school. He was an educated man with a BA in Business Administration and a MA in Accounting, both from the University of Minnesota. In 1971, he lost his job but hid the fact from his family by sitting in the bus station all day, pretending he had gone to work. $11,000 in debt, he saw no way out but the shame of welfare (his words; not mine) and sending his family to heaven. One day, he murdered his wife, mother and three children to save their souls. He told the schools and part time jobs that his family would be in South Carolina for several weeks. He stopped the mail, milk and paper delivery and took off. List HouseHe was found 18 years later through the America’s Most Wanted TV show when a viewer recognized him as his next door neighbor and called the police. He was convicted, never showed a bit of remorse and died in prison in New Jersey. When asked why he didn’t commit suicide after murdering his family, he said he couldn’t because that would mean he “couldn’t be in heaven with his family.” One ironic fact: the house he and his family owned, a 19 room Victorian home in Westfield, New Jersey, had, among other items, a signed Tiffany skylight that in 1971 was estimated to be worth over $100,000. Moron.

Some more factoids about noted mass murderers and serial killers:

  • Adolf Hitler was a Catholic Altar Boy.
  • Josef Stalin was raised a devote Methodist and studied at a seminary to become a minister.
  • David Berkowitz (aka Son of Sam) is a self-described “born again Christian” and said “God wanted me to do it.”
  • Jeffrey Dahmer (murdered 23 young men and ate most of them) was raised by a Pentecostal fundamentalist creationist wife beater. When arrested, Jeffrey Dahmer continually shouted verses from the Bible.

Seems to me that some people had a little too much religion in their lives for their own good. Or ours.

Daring Tattoo

no comment

A daring tattoo… At first glance it looks like an impressionist style butterfly.. Look a little closer… And those aren’t antennae cumming out of the head! Not every woman would dare to sport a tattoo of two women licking a bloke’s cock, especially when he’s starting to spurt as well! Gotta love it!

Lollypop, lollypop

Any of you have a daring tattoo that’s just a wee bit outside of societal norms? Send me a pic and I’ll post a them on the blog.

Love you all, Poppy xxxxxx
