Given the status of the Mozilla bookmark dataloss bugs ( <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=164244> ), I would heartily recommend trying this utility.

I have worked fairly hard over the last two (three?) years promoting Netscape, then Mozilla, in the corporate environment. What exactly am I supposed to have my help desk techs tell end users when they call up and report all their bookmarks are missing? "Sorry, that happens sometimes"?

For Firefox there's also a bookmark backup extension that saves the bookmark file when firefox is closed: <http://extensionroom.mozd…/more-info/bookmarkbackup>

or the authors page if mozdev won't load: <http://www.pikey.me.uk/mozilla/>

So if you lose your bookmarks you'll only lose them for that session.
