Re: Firefox bookmarks backup?

This doesn't make sense to me. Whether you use Mozbackup or Firefox'ss in-built import and backup system, you are still going to save the corrupt version of your bookmarks and then recover the same thing back into your new version of FF. Surely the only way to sort this out successfully would be to...

Re: Firefox bookmarks backup?

Use Mozbackup http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/download.php . That is what I was trying to remember! Well I've bitten the bullit and removed and reinstalled Firefox, but now that I have that I may just restore from backup and try again and see if it will backup my bookmarks as I really don't want to ...

Re: Firefox bookmarks backup?

Does Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks then Import and Backup -> Restore -> give you any options? Maybe you can restore a working set of bookmarks.... I'll have to see how far back my backups go and restore Firefox from the oldest one and see if I can get back to before they became corrupted. Probabl...

Re: Firefox bookmarks backup?

Well neither the backup or the export to HTML do anything at all.

Looks like it is totally stuffed :cry:

I'd rather just back them up onto my PC than have to mess with things online.

Firefox bookmarks backup?

I need to totally uninstall and reinstall Firefox as it appears that the file that holds my bookmarks has become corrupted and I can't delete or move any of them.

Does anybody have a favourite backup utility for doing this?

Re: Informing Land Registry when Mortgage is paid off

When I cleared the mortgage on my home, a few years back, First Direct automatically informed the Land Registry, who then let me know that it had been done.

but I believe you can also use it with vented systems. (Though I can't for the life of me imagine how the physics of the job would work?) I've always just tied the float up, bailed about 1/2 a bucket of water out of the tank, poured the stuff in and then let the tank refill. Within 24 hours the ket...

Re: Something fishy

Not that long ago I did due diligence on a prospective new client as they only had the minimum small company accounts at CoHo. So I asked for their full accounts for the last 3 years, before giving them a credit account. It was a total shell company without even a bank account, based at some very ex...

Re: Boiler silencer additive

I've always just tipped a bottle of Sentinel X200 into the header tank. Didn't know that it came as an aerosol at all.

Most plumbing places sell the bottles of X200, as far as I am aware.

Re: Window Film

No idea about the product, but I used to get lots of spam from them, so no the most ethical of companies, IMHO.

They only stopped after I reported them to the ICO under GDPR.

Re: Reinstating a gas supply

Well we are looking to move, soon and have already rejected a number of properties, because they don't have gas. Electricity may be the future, but gas is the now, as far as we are concerned. Unless the property has a good recent solar installation, then I would try and talk Mrs S into electric cook...

Nothing has been more divisive than Cameron saying that there would be a referendum, and then botching the setting up of it! :x

I was more disconcerted that someone has a working cannon lying about than the actual use of it. Back in the 60s, a friend of my father, who was a historic gun collector and civil war re-enactment type, made a replica of a period cannon. Somewhere I have an 8mm film of it being "used" dur...
