Firefox Bookmarks, fonts


I was busy installing opera when my bookmarks in firefox went missing,
I have looked under /.mozilla/default/4m2dev9z.slt and there they are in the bookmarks.html file but they do not appear on my default firefox. Where have they gone? Also opera has appeared to break my fonts for firefox, they are to small now. The other fonts on my windows are ok, what has happened?

Not sure what has happened.
Did you try to import the bookmarks?

If that doesn't work, you could deleting the .mozilla and letting firefox recreate it.
1. close firefox
2. backup whatever you want from .mozilla (bookmarks.html at the least)
3. delete the .mozilla folder (and all underneath it)
4. start firefox
5. import your bookmarks.

Delete the localstore.rfd file in your Firefox profile directory should take care of the problem.

Sounds like Opera some how corrupted your Firefox profile.
