I recently addressed an unknown administrator password on my ibook g4 by restarting os from bios and entering a new user and password. However, when I did this, I was unable to recover my bookmarks. Can anyone help? Thanks. I may not respond right away because I will be out for several hours.

    The old file may have permissions or ownership different now than before. You might try finding the bookmarks file in your profile (see Help! Where Do I Begin?? to find your profile folder) and making sure the file is owned and readable by you. Note that, strictly speaking, this isn't TenFourFox's bug -- any system reset of that sort may cause any application with previously saved settings to malfunction for similar reasons.
