Description Karl Ernst Brunk 2010-01-24 10:23:38 UTC
after updating from 3.5 all my bookmarks and preferences lost.
even reimport the bookmark-backups does not work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -u mozilla-firefox
2.start firefox

Actual Results:  
all bookmarks and preferences lost

Expected Results:  
the should be imported like always

the message at re-import :
Die Backup-Datei konnte nicht verarbeitet werden.
something like :
The backup-file could not be threatened
Comment 1 Jory A. Pratt gentoo-dev 2010-01-24 19:45:15 UTC
emerge --info is missing.
Comment 2 Karl Ernst Brunk 2010-01-24 21:30:54 UTC
Created attachment 217333 [details]
emerge --info

emerge --info
and :
correction the preferences are not lost. The error is that the import of the old bookmarks does not work correctly. A new bookmarks.html is build and all tries of reimporting the last backupfile dont work.
1. cp the json-backup-file to somewhere
2. delete ~/.mozilla
3. start firefox again
4. now import the copied json-file
my guess is the change of the sqlite USE-Flag. 3.6 is not using sqlite.
