Default FireFox "Users"?? Help Please

Hey, a little while ago I lost all of my bookmarks and such in FireFox, I thought somebody just used my computer and reinstalled it for some reason, I didn't care. But today I clicked on the shortcut and a dialog came up asking which user to use, "Defulat" or "Default User", I clicked default and carried on, and come to know it my old bookmarks where back. I wanted to get back my other bookmarks but I cant find a way to get back to that dialog. Anybody know what I'm talking about and if they can help? Thanks!

If you look in Windows Explorer, go to this location

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Mozilla\FireFox\Profiles\

Find the profile that you want, go into that folder and grab it's bookmarks.htm

Put it on your desktop, then launch Firefox.

Click on the BookMarks menu on top and go to Manage Bookmarks. Then click File -> Import

Navigate to the bookmarks.htm you just put on your desktop, select it an press ok.

Your bookmarks should be in that profile now there.


Its a frigging Laptop, not a Labtop!!!!
