:lol: hi
my ~/.mozilla/ was corupted after a HDisk failure (1years and now i have many dead sector on it)

i was unable to use firefox something in ~/.mozilla/ was causing him to hit %100 CPU usage while trying to read the conf (whene starting firefow or new windows or a popup) this was like DOS

i have many passwords every web/shop/forums has one and this hard to remember

0) regen new conf
Code:

mv ~/.mozilla ~/.mozilla.backup
firefox #then exit firefox


1)retrive ur old BOOKMARKS
Code:

use the bookmarkmanager to import  ~/.mozilla.backup/firefox/qf29n3mp.default/bookmarks.html/bookmarks.html#replace qf29n3mp.default/ with yours


2)retrive old pass to the newly created ~/.firefox
Code:

cp .mozilla.backup/firefox/default.1d2/signons.txt  ~/.mozilla/firefox/qf29n3mp.default/
cp .mozilla.backup/firefox/default.1d2/*.db             ~/.mozilla/firefox/qf29n3mp.default/


3)
start firefox : EDIT>PREFERENCE>PRIVACY>SAVED PASSWORD>SHOW PASS

:lol: :lol:
