RL, I'm sorry that happened. Hope you are able to enjoy your "boxer time" without too much stress. The right work will come to you when you are ready.

Thanks, Andy. One thing about being a cook, is that it isn't great money, but there is always work. So far, anyway.

Thanks, Alix. Part of me would like to take some summer time off, but I don't want to get too comfortable. And, I never want to pass up potential employment. You never know when, or if, there will be another offer.

Rock, I am very sorry to hear this and have been thinking about you since you mentioned it might be a possibility awhile ago. I will continue those thoughts for you and your ex-boss as you both head into your next phases. I know you don't want to get complacent but do try to enjoy a little down time too. I am sure you need it!

I am furious! I got an email from Firefox telling me to download the newest version 5.0. I did so. All my Favorites are GONE! I don't do Bookmark. I still have a file of favorites because I still use them in IE8, which I still have to have because Firefox 4.0 upgrade doesn't support yahoo!

I even did a system restore to a couple of days ago to get back on the Firefox 4.0 I had before, but NOOOooooo. It's gone for good too. Just like when they put out IE8 and you can't revert back to the good old IE7 which actually worked! It also took my colorful tabs - Not Compatible. Now I have the grayed out tabs that you cannot read.

Don't upgrade!!!!!!!!!! I thought that any upgrade would at least fix the problems with the previous upgrade, but not so.

I found "Tidy Favorites" add-on which is supposed to be compatible. Even though I unloaded it, it won't tell me how to set it up. AAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH (to quote Alix).

Zhizara, I feel your pain! AOL and Firefox did the same thing to me, and I hate it! Went online for solutions, and there is apparently nothing we can do. Did system restore, etc, nada.

Creeps.

Holy moly. I am so sorry to hear that! Thank you though for saving me from upgrading! Yikes! I'd have been one unhappy camper without my bookmarks!

Alix, I upgraded successfully before this. I did not lose anything but I think Z is saying she doesn't use bookmarks. I am finding the new version okay on my XP, but haven't switched yet on my netbook which has Windows 7.

Z, I do feel your pain. I have had things like that happen to me that make you feel sick all over. I had two hard drive crashes and in between them our sophisticated backup system wasn't working and we didn't know. I lost my entire family tree....thankfully much of it was printed as well.

I have read recently that a lot of people are having problems with the Firefox upgrade.
